June 5, 1992 | WILLIAM WILSON, TIMES ART CRITIC
Wallace Berman's first solo exhibition was held at La Cienega Boulevard's fabled Ferus Gallery in June, 1957. It didn't last long. The Hollywood vice squad descended on the gallery shortly after the opening and arrested the 31-year-old artist on charges of displaying lewd and pornographic material. He was found guilty. Berman turned to the courtroom blackboard and scrawled: "There is no justice, only revenge." A friend, actor Dean Stockwell, paid the $150 fine.
