Museo del Arte Raúl Anguiano: Shows, winter 2018

| Comments Off on Museo del Arte Raúl Anguiano: Shows, winter 2018

The Museo del Arte Raúl Anguiano in Guadalajara, Jalisco MX is the newest contemporary art museum in Guadalajara, inaugurated in 2003. This set of 3 general spaces may be the youngest in spirit, with eccentric shaped gallery groups, logically veering towards conceptual art and unique voices under the direction of Patricia Urzúa.. Raúl Anguiano, 1915- 2006, was a Mexican painter, muralist and artistic visionary whose work is in museums & private collections worldwide as well as here in the MURA permanent collection.

This video began as a location scout for a dance video piece that fell through but I hope to do at a later date with another group of exhibitions. I really loved this place and these shows, from the angular double roomed pieces by Isa Carillo called Hipótesis del tiempo, to the wild little completely red room – and yes I thought of the Kubrick/King “redrum” from “The Shining”, ya know murder backwards – centering a geometric circular with windows and projections 3 person exhibit LA IMAGEN PERDIDA by Javier M. Rodriguez, Leo Marz and Fabiola Torres-Alzaga. Shades of Duchamp in the projection windows.

For me as is clear in the video the kicker killer show by Sofia Crimen was DEMAGOGOS, Pequeño dios o gran farsante. Partly sure as it captures the 2018 weird zeitgeist for a US expat – teeny god/god of the teeny or big farcist. The strange combo of laughter, delight, screams and horror the pieces suggest with the weird rabbit behind a soapbar wall glued to his/her screen, well that would be me or us all maybe.

I love doing arts videos, recently in Zacatecas produced a 24 part series of half hour shows about the arts in sorta this style but with focus also on the artists at work. This experience flung me 3 years or so into that groove big time. Enjoy the art and search up the artists.

The museum is right near the Monumento de los Niños Heroes at the base of Avenida Chapultepec in beautiful Guadalajara – make sure you check it out when you are there… Av. Mariano Otero 375

Club Ciclista San Luis: El Huizache a La Huasteca

Club Ciclista San Luis does a four day tour on road bicycles of the state every August. This piece covers the trek from El Huizache, a small altiplano desert community, down into the lush Huasteca Potosina. The music by Samuel Martínex Herrera with Huazzteco is the first recording of this group which explores traditional Huapango music using singers and players native to the Huasteca region, along with jazz musicians from Mexico and USA.

Carlos Castañeda from Aguascalientes has worked with images of cadavres, transforming them into hauntingly beautiful pieces. In this show – Expulsada del Paraiso – he titles and conceives of Biblical verses that explain and enhance his vision

We did this a few years ago in San Luis Potosí – just talked with some young people from México and Germany about their interpersonal relationships – with Potosinos, with people from Mexico City and with foreigners… Thanks to Hugo Mendez for those Alameda shots and Arturo Valle as well as Lety, Karina, Rigoberto and Marco.

This video was produced in conjunction with www.roadjunky.com, thanks Tom Thumb the ultimate traveller!

´Round Midday

| Comments Off on ´Round Midday

This is the beta version of a video dance fooling around with the structure and ambiance of Thelonius Monk´s classic “´Round Midnight”, this is a version recorded in 1966 in Norway. We were doing this summertime so had ridiculous turnover of dancers who could and could not make rehearsals so its just the sketch of an indoor outdoor fun dance. Thanks to Pro-Arte Jalisco, the finest dance & arts studio in Guadalajara and thanks to the dancers: Alejandra Cole, Michel Mendoza, Gaby Molina, Marisa Torres, thanks to my new collaborator Jonathon Montaña who is doing camera, that´s me the older foreign one directing and editing and generally making this up. Vladimir Campoy was not at these shoot days but is definitely a part of this piece in Version 1.1…

Un taller fantastico con Joffrey Ballet School maestras Yusha Sorzano and Angelica Stiskin, coordinado por Monica Montano y Directora de Pro-Arte Jalisco Gaby Fernandez. Un reto y una inspiración para los bailarines…

We had a great 4 day workshop with Joffrey Ballet School maestras Yusha Sorzano and Angelica Stiskin, coordinated by Monica Montano with Pro-Arte Jalisco Director Gaby Fernandez. Was a challenge and inspiration for our dancers….

Y´all gotta go sometime in your life to Sabado de Gloria, the Saturday before Easter, at least once in your life.  When Salvador Juarez my dear friend described this to me, no I did not believe him.  2,000 charros and etc.  At the time of this shoot my español was not as great as it is now (ha) but they say 1 pm “Quema de Judas” and I figured they´d set them on fire.  So I am in a great position and then they light and explode with gunpowder and tequila these Judases!!  all my sins were forgiven…
