Description

Postcommodity and Guillermo Galindo | Culminating Performance
Wednesday, July 31, 2019 | 7-10 pm
Airport Gallery | 3026 Airport Avenue
Preceded by a Tongva Land Blessing with Elder Julia Bogany, AnMarie Mendoza, Kelly Caballero, and Jesse Calderon commemorating the commencement of 18th Street Arts Center’s operations at the Santa Monica airport

On July 31, 2019 from 7-10 PM at 18th Street Arts Center’s new gallery space at 3026 Airport Avenue, California artists Postcommodity (Kade L. Twist and Cristóbal Martínez) and Guillermo Galindo will perform a new composition performed live and with participants. The material for this new body of work will be gathered from a month of intensive workshops with community members and groups in the Pico Neighborhood to create sound art that includes local histories.

This work is commissioned by 18th Street Arts Center and kicks off the organization’s ambitious Commons Lab public art initiative for the next two years. It will also be the first artist project to be sited in 18th Street’s new gallery space at the Santa Monica Airport.

The scored sound performance will facilitate group listening, communication, improvisation and creative consensus building through intersubjective sonic and performative negotiations of meanings, values and worldviews over time. The work will be a sensory, pedagogical, and consensus building experience that could help build relationships in a generative manner around a set of contested issues. The issues will be determined by a group of committed stakeholders who are participating in skills building workshops, group rehearsals, and a set of short organized performances at Otis in advance of the culminating performance at 18th Street’s gallery.

The culminating performance on July 31st will be preceded by a Tongva Land Blessing with Elder Julia Bogany, commemorating the commencement of 18th Street Arts Center’s operations at the Santa Monica airport.

Postcommodity and Guillermo Galindo’s Commons Lab Residency is generously supported by the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Visual Arts, California Arts Council Artists in Communities, and NEA Our Town.
