Project Space (613 Allen) On view during events and by appointment only
Fade Grid is Carlos Rosales-Silva’s first Texas exhibition of new work since relocating to New York City. Spanning several mediums, Rosales-Silva’s brightly colored, darkly humorous work is representative of the larger cultural and social structures Americans occupy in both the physical and digital realm. Different art historical modes are leveraged and instilled with new relevancy when filtered through the exchanges, histories, and visual cues of urban communities.
Carlos Rosales-Silva is an artist living and working in New York, NY. Rosales-Silva attended the University of Texas at Austin where he received his BFA in Studio Art in 2010. In 2008 he became a member of the Okay Mountain Collective and Gallery. Most recently he mounted a year long solo project at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. His favorite activity is watching the sunset. His favorite biome is the desert. www.carlosrosalessilva.tumblr.com
"Shaman and The Warrior: Chapter 1: Prayermakers and the Bonesetters" Anthony Romero + Carlos Rosales-Silva + + + +
Co-Lab Project Space
A Collaborative Installation by Anthony Romero + Carlos Rosales-Silva
Excerpt from Chapter 1:
In the aftermath of their meeting, the Shaman and the Warrior had torn a path through what was once known as a sacred place. Their meeting had produced only one certainty, they were born of the same cosmic mother, and their journeys would be intertwined because of it.
Prayermakers and Bonesetters will chronicle the meeting of these two mythic beings and be built on the ashes of the ceremony (fiesta) held in their honor. The installation will be a melding of cultural identity politics, magical realism, bright colors, Edward James Olmos, and disembodied spirits.
