SEPTEMBER 29, 2018 - FEBRUARY 16, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2018, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology examines the transnational exchange and circulation of revolutionary and activist ideas through which political protest intersected with experimental artistic practices across generations, and between the U.S. and Mexico. The exhibition centers on three instances of political and cultural production, each called Regeneración, and the interconnected ideas and relationships between them. The term regeneración was first used by the Los Angeles-based, Mexican anarchist Flores Magón brothers in their revolutionary-era political newspaper Regeneración (1900–18); subsequently adopted in the cultural and political journal Regeneración (1970–75), which was an important collaborative site for the Chicano avant-garde group Asco; and later evoked in the experimental space Regeneración/Popular Resource Center of Highland Park (1993–99).

 

These groups and sites of production were incubators for transnational political thought and forms of resistance that linked Mexico and the United States from the site of Los Angeles, stimulating the creation of journals, print media, plays, music, film, satirical cartoons, drawings, performances, and poetry, and contributing to the convergence of art, community, and politics across the span of one hundred years. Tracing political and artistic modes of cultural production rooted in counter-hegemonic practices within Latino communities in Los Angeles in the twentieth century, Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology aims to shed light on nuanced aspects of Southern California’s regional history.

 

This exhibition was organized with extensive collaboration from advisors, artists and historians. It reflects collaboration with, contributions from, and works by Lalo Alcaraz, ASCO, Raul Baltazar, Barnet, Jacinto Barrera Bassols, Alberto Beltran, Akira Boch, Ludovico Caminita, Oscar Castillo, Amicc de la Fée, Zack de la Rocha, Elizabeth Delgadillo-Merfeld, Victoria Delgadillo, Richard Estrada, Lysa Flores, William Flores, Diego Flores Magón Bustamante, Roman Gabriel, Joseph Galarza, Diane Gamboa, Harry Gamboa Jr., Antonio (Willie) Garcia, Javier Gonzalez, Gronk, Colin Gunckel, Romeo Guzmán, Sara Harris, Sergio Hernandez, Willie F.

Villegas Jr., Marius de Zayas, Sergio Zenteno and others.

 

The exhibition will be accompanied by a robust public program series, including art and music performances, film screenings, a symposium, and art workshops for families, in addition to a gallery sound booth for online radio station programming and conducting oral histories. In an effort to continue to gather materials related to this history, the Vincent Price Art Museum welcomes communication from those invested and engaged with these iterations of Regeneración to deepen the research of these important periods.

Music Scene” Panel/Concert Featuring: Alice Bag, Teresa Covarrubias, Lysa Flores, Martha Gonzales plus Special Guests 1-2:45 p.m. Panel: “Chicanas in the East L.A. Music Scene” Featuring musicians Alice Bag of the Bags, Martha Gonzales of Quetzal, Lysa Flores, and Professor Michelle Habell-Pallan (see bios below). This panel will showcase the story of the women who rock and forged a place for women’s voices in the East Los Angeles punk music scene of the 1980s and the subsequent starring role of Chicanas in the East LA music scene of the 1990s and 2000s. An evening concert will follow later that evening. 7:30-10pm Concert: “Chicanas in the East L.A. Music Scene” In a historic collaboration, three generations of Chicana musicians come together to celebrate and acknowledge the central role of women in the making of the East Los Angeles sound. Alice Bag of the influential punk band the Bags, Teresa Covarrubias lead singer of the Brat—one of the first Chican@ punk bands, Lysa Flores- famed Chicana activista, actresss and songwriter and Martha Gonzales of the break out East L.A. band Quetzal join forces and perform together for the first time on stage at the CSULA Music Hall. They will be backed up by an all–female band that will include Gloria Estrada, guitarist for La Santa Cecilia, percussionist Caitlin Moss, and Vaneza Calderón on bass. Opening the night will be Lysa Flores in a collaboration with East LA Taiko for a ground breaking experimentation of Chicana Rock and Japanese Taiko. The members of East LA Taiko include Fredo Ortiz of Beastie Boys, Maceo Hernandez- the demon drummer of LA and Dave Jones of Carnage Asada. Biographies of Featured Panelists/Performers: · Alice Bag – Alicia Armendariz Velasquez (aka Alice Bag) is a punk rock singer, musician, author, educator and feminist archivist. She is most famous for being a member of The Bags, one of the first bands on the L.A. punk scene. The Bags were notable for having two female lead musicians (Patricia Morrison co-founded the group with her school friend, Bag) and for pioneering an aggressive sound and style which has been cited as an early influence on what would become the hardcore punk sound. Bag went on to appear and perform in other Los Angeles based rock bands including Castration Squad, The Boneheads, Alarma, Cambridge Apostles, Swing Set, Cholita - the Female Menudo (with her friend and collaborator, performance artist Vaginal Davis), Las Tres, Goddess 13 and Stay At Home Bomb. Bag's memoir, Violence Girl, From East LA Rage to Hollywood Stage - A Chicana Punk Story, was published by Feral House in Fall 2011. · Teresa Covarrubias –Raised in Boyle Heights in East L.A., Covarrubias recorded and performed as lead singer of The Brat in the 1970s and 1980s. The Brat was an influential Chicano punk band from East Los Angeles formed by Covarrubias and guitarist brothers Rudy and Sid Medina. The Brat featured Covarrubias’ aggressive, yet melodic, punk vocals critiquing social inequality. The Brat never found breakthrough success and remained an underground East L.A. Chican@ act until breaking up in the late ‘80s. After the Brat broke up Covarrubias joined Chicana feminist groups Las Tres and Goddess 13. These groups, along with other Chicana musical formations, influenced the shape of L.A.s early punk scene in both Hollywood and East L.A. She continues to be an important East L.A. performer. · Lysa Flores - Flores, a first generation Mexican-American, has been a pioneer in the “East Los” alternative scene since her teens and was named by Newsweek as one of “20 young Latinos to watch in the new millennium”. A woman of many facets Flores is a singer songwriter, activist, actress, producer and started her own recorded label in 1998. For her starring role in the critically acclaimed film Star Maps, Flores earned a “Best Debut Performance” nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards. Flores also served as the films Musical Director and Produced the ground breaking soundtrack that introduced Chicano and Mexicano artists to an international audience. Refusing to be categorized by society's stifling labels, she moves easily through musical genres and art forms with a unique style. She has toured extensively both the US and Europe and has recorded and collaborated with such luminaries as Tex-Mex superstar Flaco Jimenez, indie-rock legend Jonathan Richman, John Doe, Peter Case, David Hidalgo(Los Lobos), guitarist Bill Frisell, and drummer D.J. Bonebrake (X, the Knitters). · Martha Gonzales – Dr. Gonzalez was born and raised in East Los Angeles and is a Chicana artivista (artist/activist), feminist music theorist and professor of Chicano Studies at Scripps College in Pomona. She has been the lead singer and percussionist for the band Quetzal for the last 17 years. The unique blend of East Los Angeles sounds as well as the social justice content in the work of Quetzal has sparked dialogue and theoretical work among various artist communities, culture theorists, and scholars across the country, Mexico and Japan. They have produced five full-length albums and in 2013 won the Grammy for Best Latin Pop, Rock or Album for their latest, Imaginaries. · Michelle Habell-Pallan - Dr. Habell-Pallan is a Professor in the Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Washington in Seattle. A respected cultural critic, digital archivista, and exhibit curator, she authored Loca Motion: The Travels of Chicana/Latina Popular Culture and co-edited Latino/a Popular Culture. She is co-curator of the award-winning bilingual and currently traveling exhibit American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music and co-founder and co-director the University of Washington Libraries Women Who Rock Oral History Archive.

Santa Monica, CA- On Saturday, October 6, 2012 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., 18th Street Arts Center, is bringing its renowned BAM Fest (Beer, Art and Music Festival) to the Westside of L.A. Held in the heart of Santa Monica, BAM Fest celebrates the best of locally-produced art and music in conjunction with a variety of delicious craft beers. With 35-plus craft breweries, 4 bands, 3 galleries, open artist studios, an artist market, and gourmet food trucks, BAM Fest is well equipped to draw record-breaking crowds in its third year as one of the West Sides' most anticipated festivals. Known for being the first Craft Beer Festival in Santa Monica, this year's attendance is anticipated at close to 1,500. And the event is a steal, with tickets priced at just $35 before September 22nd, $40 after that and $45 at the door. BAM Fest attendees not only feel great because they're spending a Saturday afternoon sipping in the sun, meeting artists and checking out great art while listening to groovy tunes, but also because they know that all proceeds benefit 18th Street Arts Center, a 24-year old, influential non-profit arts organization in Santa Monica. Santa Monica resident and owner of Santa Monica Pizza Kitchen, Kaveh Karimi, says "BAM Fest is probably my favorite event of the year. It brings a community together and truly helps a great cause". This year 18th Street is teaming up with LA craft beer industry veteran Martin Svab (formerly of Stone Brewing Co. & Naja's Place) to help facilitate the beer side of the festival. Participating craft breweries range from big to small, including the popular and larger Sierra Nevada Brewing and Ballast Point Brewing Company to the smaller but equally great Angel City, Monkish and Beachwood Brewing. From cool-fermented lagers to warm-fermented ales, the craft beer offerings at 18th Street's Beer, Art and Music Festival offer a range of styles for tasting enjoyment. For the beer connoisseur, this year BAM Fest is showcasing unique and unreleased beers on tap, including a rare Smog City barrel-aged beer. This year will also include a Duvel-Moortgat Brewery tent featuring a number of the Flemish family's Belgian-style beers. And for those that aren't as fond of beer there will also be an area to sample some of Southern California's finest wines as well as home brewed sodas by Pacific Gravity Home Brewers Club. Just as any artist painstakingly toils over each detail of a masterpiece, today's craft brewer goes to great lengths to produce unique, award-winning works of art. With the marriage of beer, art and music, BAM Fest has brewed a one-of-a-kind fundraising event. The music lined up for BAM Fest is just as diverse as the beer samples. From the addictive rock & roll sounds rooted in rural blues, early country, and Appalachian folk music of "The Americans," to the sultry vocals, feminist chicana lyrics and powerful Japanese Taiko drums of "Lysa Flores and East L.A. Taiko" the featured music at 18th Street's festival is sure to make attendees groove. The Los Angeles-based trio, "American Bloomers," is founded on authentic pop music that is steeped in classic rock and folk harmonies, while "The Dustbowl Revival" mix a spicy roots cocktail with their dance-inducing live sets that merge old school bluegrass, swamp-gospel, jug-band, jump blues and the hot swing of the 1930's. Between band sets, artist and DJ, "Freshair" will fuse an array of musical styles to keep the crowd jammin'. BAM Fest attendees also get the special opportunity to explore a dynamic installation of new work by 18th Street's Lab Artist, Eamon Ore-Giron. Incorporating sculpture, video, painting, music and performance Ore-Giron references the alternate guitar tuning scale E-B-G-D-B-G unique to the Central Andes, by likening this indigenous Spanish musical scale with the merger of folk, pop, historical and conceptual references throughout his interdisciplinary artworks. Themes of tourism, revolution, design, and public sculpture are at play in the works, while formal questions about the relationship between functional sculpture and introspective form are explored. In addition, artworks are available for purchase at an artist marketplace organized by past 18th Street Artist Fellow, Ana Guajardo, and the resident artists who live, work and create daily at 18th Street open their studios for attendees to experience works in progress. Need a little something to soak up all the scrumptious brews? The bold and flavorful authentic Mexican dishes by the Border Grill Truck or the sublime banh mi and Vietnamese tacos from the Nom Nom Truck might just do the trick. Or perhaps a half-pound "maneater" sized burger from Baby's Badass Burgers or a family-farmed pork bratwurst or spicy "hot" dog with signature Devil Sauce from Let's Be Frank Dogs is more your style. In addition, Fresh Brothers Pizza will be offering complimentary pizza samples that should keep your grumbling stomach at bay. Without a doubt, BAM Fest 2012 is poised to draw a fun crowd in its third year as Santa Monica's 'hoppiest' annual event. Tickets are on sale at: http://18thstreet.org/events/bam-fest-2012.

Mexicali Biennial 06 - 8pm
Calle Bravo #470 entre Lerdo y López Mateos
Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, MX
Mexico
PRESS RELEASE The MexiCali Biennial is pleased to announce the inaugural installment of its bi-national, dual-venue exhibition of contemporary art and music. Featuring artists and musicians from southern California and the bordering Mexican states, the MexiCali Biennial aims to provide a platform for border crossing, progressive art exhibitions and events. These events encourage dynamic cultural exchanges that resonate within the fluid context of the US-Mexico border. This border biennial distinguishes itself by tapping into the unique aesthetic derived from a culture of art, music and critical dialog evolving from the confluence of both countries in a region defined by its hybridism. The 2006 MexiCali Biennial encompasses two events, one on either side of the US-Mexico border. The first is an exhibition comprised of thirteen Los Angeles-based artists at the Casa de la Tía Tina, an alternative art and music space in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. The second phase of the biennial is a contemporary multi-media event with visual artists, live bands and DJs from both Los Angeles and Mexicali at Chavez Studios in East Los Angeles, California. Characterized by it open-endedness, the curatorial approach of the organizers reflects the unencumbered nature of cultural diaspora and urban sprawl. Thematic concerns lie in the overarching context of this exhibition being seen as a biennial. Curated solely by invitation, the participating artists are free to address the inherent conditions of the exhibition sites as they see fit. The intent is not to ask artists to respond to issues characteristic of this region, but instead to expose international audiences to the wide variety of artworks that are currently produced intuitively from within this context. Future incarnations of the MexiCali Biennial may occur at odd intervals, as this project is not limited to a bi-annual platform. No restrictions are to apply to venue type which may include institutional, alternative, or non-traditional art spaces as well as conceptual locations such as the internet, public interventions or by word of mouth. Non-regional, international participants will be included in future exhibitions and events. 2006 featured artists include Andrew Armstrong, Jesse Benson, Gomez Bueno, Cindy Santos Bravo, Luis G. Hernandez, Ed Gomez, Skylar Haskard, Gustavo Herrera, Hugo Hopping, Kristi Lippire, Ruben Ochoa, Mike Rogers, and Matt Wardell. Projects involve on and off-site installations and border-crossing interventions including Ed Gomez’s “100 Envelopes from Los Angeles to Mexicali”, consisting of 100 envelopes mailed between California and Mexico each containing a one-inch section of a map of the US-Mexican border, to be reassembled in the gallery. Mike Rogers fosters communication in his installation entitled “Telephone/Teléfono” consisting of two 10-foot telephone poles on either side of the border fence separating Calexico and Mexicali, connected by the string and tin cans of a child’s telephone game. Cindy Santos Bravo’s multi-layered construction investigates histories of imposed security barriers across international borders. Musical guests at both events will include Los Angeles-based performer Lysa Flores, whose alternative rock en español sound has earned her recognition as one of the leading voices of the genre north of the border. Flores was named by Newsweek as one of 20 young Latinos to watch in the new millennium. She has toured internationally for over ten years with legendary performer El Vez, and has opened for renowned musicians including Green Day, Los Lobos, Victoria Williams and Jaguares. Multiple musical groups will perform at each event and DJs from Mexicali and Los Angeles will spin.
