Visual Poetry and Performance Festival


Wednesday, July 1, 7pm $5
MAIZ and  NK603: Action(Z)
Performance by: Violeta Luna & Guillermo Galindo
MCCLA Main Gallery

A hybrid collaborative performance between  post_Mexican musician and performer gal*in_dog aka Guillermo Galindo, and Mexican post-performance artist Violeta Luna.

In search of a hybrid 21st-century post-Mexican art form that reconciles contradictory concepts such as primal instincts, animism, and mythology with contemporary science and technology, gal*in_dog decided to create an integrated cyber totemic sonic device that works as a conduit between visual and sound that truthfully reflects his hybrid reality.

Violeta Luna’s performance work NK 603: Action(Z) has been conceived as a reflection on American genetically modified corn, and its devastating consequences on native corn varieties. These hybrid, engineered seeds, contaminate not only ancient bio-processes in nature, but also ways of life and health of millions in Mexico, other Latin American countries, and around the world.

Performance Dates:

June 24, July 1 and July 8. 7pm $5

Exhibition Dates: June 19 – July 10 2009
