The banana is probably the most popular and sexual fruit out there. With this in mind, Fallen Fruit has put on an exhibition called ‘United Fruit’ at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE).

The exhibition explores the corrupt nature of a Chiquita banana company in Columbia, South America.

If you’re in the L.A. area this summer and love fruit, you should check out the social, political and pop history of bananas at LACE. The exhibition will be running from now until September 27th, 2009. Stats for Fruity Exhibitions Trending: Older & Chilly
