Election Week @ MCASD

November 4, 2008 – 6:48 pm

We wanted to pass along the most recent doings at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown San Diego, who is offering some Election recovery art therapy with their next “Thursday Night Thing” this week. Here is a copy of this week’s email:

FIRST THURSDAYS AT MCASD DOWNTOWN
1001 KETTNER BLVD AT BROADWAY

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6 > 7-10 PM
NON-MEMBERS $3 DONATION; MEMBERS FREE

PARALLEL LINES

L.A.-based multidisciplinary artist Susan Silton will be present to discuss her work, currently on view in the exhibition Memory Is Your Image of Perfection at MCASD Downtown’s 1001 Kettner galleries.

Silton’s large-scale chromogenic prints fuse together colorful vertical stripes with stills from mid-century apocalyptic films that responded to U.S. fears during the Cold War.

Playing off the fear and tension of current political and economic times, pose for the camera with your most frightened face. Then, using the printed photo and a vibrant, transparent veil of vertical stripes, create your own Silton-inspired photographic souvenir.

Enjoy live music on the plaza, featuring the heavy rock of local favorites Transfer; psychedelic pop by Tucson-based Hot Rolling Empire; and DJ Skullcrusher playing a mix of electro and alternative.

PRIMER JUEVES EN MCASD DOWNTOWN (SEDE CENTRO) 1001 KETTNER BLVD Y BROADWAY

JUEVES, 6 DE NOVIEMBRE > 7-10 PM
SOCIOS GRATIS; NO SOCIOS DONACIÓN DE $3

LÍNEAS PARALELAS

Susan Silton, artista interdisciplinaria asentada en Los Ángeles, estará en el Museo para hablar de su obra, que actualmente se puede disfrutar en la exposición Memory Is Your Image of Perfection (El recuerdo es tu imagen de la perfección), en las galerías de 1001 Kettner, la sede de MCASD en el centro de San Diego.

Las impresiones cromógenas a gran escala de Silton funden coloridas barras verticales con fotogramas de películas apocalípticas de mediados del siglo pasado que respondían a los temores de los estadounidenses en la era de la guerra fría.

Juega con la tensión y el miedo que permean la economía y la política actuales poniendo para las cámaras una cara que demuestre tu pavor. Después, usando una copia impresa de la foto y un velo transparente de vibrantes barras verticales, crea tu propio recuerdo fotográfico de inspiración Silton.

Disfruta en la plaza de música en vivo con el rock heavy de la banda local favorita, Transfer, el pop psicodélico de Hot Rolling Empire, llegado de Tucson, y el DJ Skullcrusher, que ofrecerá una mezcla de música electro y alternativa.
