GEN MEX – April 29, 7- 9:30pm
Featured curator, Carlos Gutierrez of Cinema Topical and Esto es TECH-MEX, presents GEN MEX, an evening of experimental video works that capture the changing landscape of today’s Mexico. Recently, Mexican cinema has experienced an exciting comeback with such critical and box-office successes as Amores Perros and Y Tu Mamá también. Yet, beyond the spotlight, there exists a vibrant video art scene that very few people are aware of which may prove to be even more challenging and dynamic than narrative cinema. Artists from around the country are exploring new ways of linking their own aesthetic interests to current political, social, sexual and national identity issues. The video art form, being accessible and low-cost, has lent itself to interesting experimentation and collaborations, as well as fostering a spirit of aesthetic independence among artists of diverse backgrounds.
Angel Nevarez + Alex Rivera (Los Nukiis) will spin their blend of electro-cumbia and breakbeat banda in pure sonic fusion!! begins at 9:30 admission is free
