Exhibition & Residency:
September 24 – December 14, 2012
As part of 18th Street Arts Center’s Artist Labs program, and developed on-site in our Main Gallery, Los Angeles-based artist, musician and DJ Eamon Ore-Giron presents a dynamic installation of new work incorporating sculpture, video, painting, music and live performances from September 24 until December 14, 2012. Referencing the alternate guitar tuning scale E-D-G-B-D-G unique to the Central Andes, Ore-Giron likens this hybrid indigenous and Spanish musical scale with the merger of folk, pop, historical and conceptual references throughout his interdisciplinary artworks. A complex interplay between themes of tourism, revolution, design, and public sculpture reverberate within the works, while formal questions regarding the relationship between functional sculpture and introspective form are explored.
