Presented by 18th Street Arts Center at their new off-site curatorial operations at the Santa Monica Airport campus, tonight’s event is both a culmination and an inauguration.
As part of 18th Street’s two-year Commons Lab artist residency project, interdisciplinary social practice artists Guillermo Galindo and Postcommodity (Kade L. Twist and Cristóbal Martínez) have been conducting workshops, events, and rehearsals for several weeks. Tonight’s participatory, partly-improvisational live music and sound performance wraps up their larger multimedia project — but it happens off-site, as the debut of the new gallery which forms part of their new stewardship of arts programs at the Santa Monica Airport art studios.
As is fitting for blessing a new community place, the event will begin with a Tongva land acknowledgement.
