EUROPEAN PREVIEW  DISPLAY  |  ENDLESS NIGHTS ~ MAPPING THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES  THROUGH A COLLECTIVE MEMORY exhibition by Guadalupe Rosales ⟨Los Angeles⟩ founder of Map Pointz / Veteranas and Rucas — This edition is inaugurated with the European preview project by the LA artist Guadalupe Rosales, hosted at the O' non profit association. Rosales' practice is based on the theme of the archive in progress, composed of photographs, videos, audio and vernacular objects related to the Rave scene of the '90s and to the Latinx and Chicanx youth culture of Los Angeles. The stories that the artist collects, partly visible in the profiles of the related projects - @veteranas_and_rucas | @map_pointz - are traces of a community represented below in the institutional context, fragile and intense testimonies of authentic experiences. Rosales has realized an immersive site-specific installation, which deconstructs and reframes marginalized histories, offering platforms of conversation and agency of self-representation. This occasion is also the first opportunity, for the public, to consult Map Pointz, the brand new volume by Guadalupe for the Little Big Man publishing house. The edition documents the popular SoCal crew of kids active in the West Coast Techno/Acid scene of the '90s, subculture in which Rosales was involved in first person ↝ veteranasandrucas.com   |  Opening 23.11.18  6pm—10pm  |  24/25.11.18  11am—6pm ↝ O' non profit association

SCREENING  |  A FOCUS ON ULISES CARRIÓN ⟨1941—1989⟩

A Book 1981, 7’52’’  

Bookworks revisited. Part 1: a selection 1987, 36’33’’

beside a reproduction of the text The New Art of Making Books 1975

— The screening program is focused on the Mexican artist Ulises Carrión ⟨San Andrés, Tuxtla, Mexico, 1941 - Amsterdam 1989⟩. With the manifesto The New Art of Making Books, Carrión has played a decisive role in defining the artist's book as a creative medium. His interdisciplinary practice has not only given rise to a large number of books and a publishing house, Other Books and So, but has also been expressed through shows, films, videos and sound works, working in public, institutional and independent. Equally essential for his journey was the involvement in the first artist-run space in Amsterdam, In-Out Center, active from 1972 to 1975. 'Dear reader. Don’t read' is one of his most widely recognized aphorisms  |  24/25.11.18  1pm—9pm ↝ Spazio Maiocchi
