"SET IN MOTION" DECEMBER 2008

 

I am an artist also a curator. The first show I curated was a tremendous success. I curated a group show with over 40 artists. The show was titled "Set-In-Motion" December 6th & 7th, 2008. It took place at Basswerks Gallery in Los Angeles, USA.  www.basswerks.net

This was a 2-day show. I combined a variety of media like photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, installation, architecture, sculpture, and Music. (and many more)
I had 3 bands (Random Ninjas  , Night of broken Glass   & Emberis Theory  ) play live and 1 hip-hop artist (Kid Casino-The Lyrical Apache) and 2 DJs (Zuko Kid & Chee-Bo  ).

The theme or title "Set-in-Motion" was chosen to serve as a "fire-started" a "kick-start" a spark of enthusiasm and desire to get artists motivated in an art-world full of clutter and competition. I had both: established artist and new artists. My intention was to create an event/art-show that would serve the artists and expose new talent. The quality of the art we had was exceptional as I was told by many.

A major piece of the art-show was a 30ft installation/sculpture that was at the center of the gallery that served and became a space enhancement. The title of this sculpture was "The Clouds" (By Jesus Eduardo and Paulina Boyer-Magana). The very thoughtful and elaborate installation was arched over the above space between the ceiling and the viewing audience. This sculpture/Installation, (that took over 4 moths to plan, design and execute to perfection), was removed and destroyed after the 2nd and last day of the show.

You can see videos) of the gallery in my myspace profile www.myspace.com/Efren_Luna). In one of the two videos you can hear live music by Random Ninjas

 

"URBAN GRAVITATION" JULY 2009

 

Art & Music Show on Sunday July 12th, 2009. Our show consisted of 3 events in 3 separate spaces within one venue (THE GREEN TURTLE Whittier, CA). A gallery space, a patio with live graffiti artists, and the main bar with live bands and rappers on stage. Our theme “URBAN GRAVITATION” was inspired to bring in artworks and music that expressed some aspects of urban life. Because in our big metropolis as diverse as everything is, we also intermingle at some point, this was the focus of our show.

An extra room inside the venue was transformed into an alternative space gallery with an installation based on architectural designs that served as a wall to hang artworks. (This was an amazing installation). The alternative gallery space has been described as one big installation.

The patio was transformed with special “canvases” for graffiti artists to work live. They turned the otherwise boring patio into a live happening for these urban artists and gave the show a touch of authenticity.

And the main stage, next to the bar and DJ spinning between 4 bands and 6 rappers. (BANDS) KATERPILLAR, BOMBEROS, SHYTOWN, and MIXBREED.  (RAPPERS) G WEBB , CASINOKINGZ,  BIG STORM,  ADIVINA?, REBEL KID, STEVIE CROOKS And DJ HAVOK

 

 

 

"THE LIVE FESTIVAL" SEP 2009

 

Art & Music Show on Saturday September 19th, 2009. Our show consisted of 3 events in 3 separate spaces within one venue (THE CAT CLUB West Hollywood, CA). An alternative gallery space, the patio was transformed into an alternative gallery space. A VIP Room, transformed into a mini gallery with an artist painting live. And the main bar with live bands, DJs and rappers on stage. Our theme “THE LIVE FESTIVAL” was selected to encompass these 3 live simultaneous events and to help stir live art and music movement.

Our main exhibition space was the patio. This was transformed into an Alternative Space Gallery. Our creative people made a site-specific-installation based on architectural designs that served us both visually and interactively. The design was both a ceiling for the patio and a wall to hang artworks. It was design to become a hanging mechanism for artworks. This was an amazing installation! The alternative gallery space has been described as one big installation.

An extra room inside the venue on the upper level (VIP Room) was transformed into a mini gallery with prolific live painter artist Michael Pukac painting live.

The Live theme also included live music by bands and DJs at the stage next to the bar. Performances by: (BANDS& DJ’S )KATERPILLAR, Geoffro, DJ Lumis , World Famous DJ HAZZE, PMA King Selector, DJ Alex Love and DJ Brian Martin

The stage and bar area included 3 small visual designs that connected visually with the alternative gallery in the back.  Also the wall had 1 LCD screen showing a 3D animation video design of the Installation.
