I am an artist also a curator. This was the first show I curated and 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 www.myspace.com/randomninjasmusic , Night of broken Glass www.myspace.com/nbgmetal & Emberis Theory www.myspace.com/emberis ) play live and 1 hip-hop artist (Kid Casino-The Lyrical Apache) and 2 DJs (Zuko Kid & Chee-Bo www.myspace.com/catharsissoundcheebo ).
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 ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8gOFddYCxA www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hb7yzRSj-GA ) of the gallery in my myspace profile www.myspace.com/151774965 ). In one of the two videos you can hear live music by Random Ninjas www.myspace.com/randomninjasmusic
