18th Street Arts Center: Postcommodity and Guillermo Galindo
July 31, 2019 7:00 pm

18th Street Arts Center (Airport Campus)
3026 Airport Ave, Santa Monica, 90405

On July 31, 2019 from 7-10 PM at 18th Street Arts Center’s new gallery space at 3026 Airport Avenue, California artists Postcommodity (Kade L. Twist and Cristóbal Martínez) and Guillermo Galindo will perform a new composition performed live and with participants. The material for this new body of work will be gathered from a month of intensive workshops with community members and groups in the Pico Neighborhood to create sound art that includes local histories.

This work is commissioned by 18th Street Arts Center and kicks off the organization’s ambitious Commons Lab public art initiative for the next two years. It will also be the first artist project to be sited in 18th Street’s new gallery space at the Santa Monica Airport.

The scored sound performance will facilitate group listening, communication, improvisation and creative consensus building through intersubjective sonic and performative negotiations of meanings, values and worldviews over time. The work will be a sensory, pedagogical, and consensus building experience that could help build relationships in a generative manner around a set of contested issues. The issues will be determined by a group of committed stakeholders who are participating in skills building workshops, group rehearsals, and a set of short organized performances at Otis in advance of the culminating performance at 18th Street’s gallery.

Postcommodity and Guillermo Galindo’s Commons Lab Residency is generously supported by the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Visual Arts, California Arts Council Artists in Communities, and NEA Our Town.
