MACLA/Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana presents Custom Lives: Rasquache Renaissance.
Works by Carlos Rolón/Dzine, Marcos Gaitan, Sergio Garcia, Luis Gispert, Nery Gabriel Lemus, Gilbert “Magu” Lujan, Melina Ramirez, Betsabeé Romero, and Ana Serrano, who together fluidly navigate the space between culture and subculture.
To take part in the act of customization is a declaration. The way we proclaim our allegiance to a particular group, our politics, our identity is through the objects we surround ourselves with. It is the way we customize our lives from the vehicles that we drive, to the clothes that we buy, to the hairstyles we wear.
The work in Custom Lives: Rasquache Renaissance speaks to the ways in which customization carries meaning beyond aesthetics.
12-7 pm Mon.-Thurs.
12-5 pm Fri.-Sun
