SlangAir 2011 artists from Puerto Rico
Christopher Rivera and Radames “Juni” Figueroa
will be in residency and do an exhibition titled, “War Spectacle: The Last Paradise “
Saturday April 23, 2011
Panel Discussion: 5-7pm
Opening Reception: 7pm-10pm
According to the artists, the show examines the underground music Scene (punk, garage, post-punk, hiphop, goth, etc.) has been characterized as a space where multiple aspects of artistic innovation are explored. Starting in the 60’s, it’s history is multi-generational, and although it has undergone a great deal of transformations it is today, still, extremely active. Design, music, performance, propaganda, meeting space and attire are a few of the aspects that compose the Scene’s alternative social network and visual culture. Christopher and Juni met inside the music Scene as a parting point for this project. Their project proposal consists in producing a small, underground, musical event based on LA’s Scene.
