“Of Avant Tardism: Los Angeles Edition” brings us all the way from Detroit, Michigan, the infamous Jimbo Easter.
Recent recipiant of the esteemed ‘Kresge Grant’, Jimbo’s work as a Preformance and Visual artist defies any explaination other than unforgettable: a mix of the savage, insane, nightmarish and comedic lunacy that scrawls its name into your subconscious with a sharpened femur bone. www.jimboeaster.weebly.com
Los Angeles’s own Jonnie Prey, formely from the icy rubber room of Michigan also explores a savage landscape, his Performance Art work seeks to veil the portal of the cognitive, perceptions of what the connecting tissue means and replace it with abstraction, internal strangle, masks and ritual. www.jonnieprey.com
There will be a surprise film from Detroit-raised / LA based Jesus Rivera (Demonbabies), who’s recent film series “Dark Family Myths” have further opened the grey matter of mediocrity’s portals into a wild and telling future of the short film narrative. http://www.demonbabies.tv/
DJ Set By Christopher Reid Martin
