I'm very excited to announce that I will have a sculpture in QiPO 01 as part of Mexico City's Art Fair Week with Los Angles art collective Monte Vista Projects.
QiPO 01 is the first iteration of international art exhibits co-organized by members of the QiPO curatorial collective. QiPO 01 features galleries, curators, artists and collectives from cities in Europe, Asia and the Americas including Mexico City, Berlin, Los Angeles and Tokyo.
This event will take place at uninhabited, repurposed storefront spaces in an impressive structure constructed during the Porfiriato period in Mexico City’s Historic Center within walking distance from notable galleries and major art events happening simultaneously. The classic building and our art event is situated in front of the Reloj Chino (Chinese clock), one of Mexico City’s emblematic roundabout monuments which was gifted to the city from China more than 100 years ago.
Unlike other gallery shows and fairs happening during this time, QiPO 01 will be a multi-project exhibition conceived, designed and hand-made by the organizers from the ground up. Not so much a radical departure, we hope this showcase will provide an unconventional and refreshing context to the city’s more “official” events.
I did a little interview with Voyage LA earlier this month. If you've ever wanted to know my origin story, or wanted to know more about my process, you can get the scoop in this interview! Read it here.
Outside the Box 2 is opening at bG Gallery in Santa Monica this Saturday, December 15 from 5-9 pm. This group show includes several of my works, including some I just finished today! If you're in the LA area come out and see. The show will be up through mid-January.
Opening tonight, February 10, 7-10 pm, I'll have several works in Natural 20, a collaboration between Austin's ICOSA art collective and artist-run spaces Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles and Monte Vista Projects at the Bendix building in downtown LA.
At this time last week I had no idea that I would have work in this show. In a terrible turn of events, all the artwork shipped to LA from Austin was stolen (story here). As they say, the show must go on, so ICOSA has hand-carried work from Austin, and artist friends from Austin now living in LA were asked to bring in work. This has been a true community effort - come out and see! Through March 4. More details here.
Happy New Year! I've got a few pieces (including the one shown below) in Fresh Start, opening this Sunday, January 14 from 4-7 pm at LAVA Projects. There's 29 LA artists in this show and Gas Dot Gallery will be parked outside. Artist list and info here. Come out and see!
