Mario Ybarra Jr. and Karla Diaz founded Slanguage in 2002 as a loosely affiliated artist collective. Its evolving membership makes art, curates shows and generally does whatever woke-minded interdisciplinary action is required to get the beauty and knowledge out to as many people as possible, making incursions from both deep inside and way outside the mainstream art world purview. Their current residency at the Armory Center's off-site project space, a formerly residential property fittingly called La Casita is termed a "social sculpture." This means that Slanguage recombines elements of site-specific materials recycling, performance, public engagement, research into local history, and the sights and sounds of the neighborhood — from local artists to nearby schools and street vendors — in producing staged events, mask-making workshops for all ages, and random acts of real life, condensed.
