The Capital City Arts Initiative [CCAI] presents its exhibition, Saludos Amigos, by artist Justin Favela at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery. Favela installed his work with community assistance from September 30 – October 4. The Courthouse is located at 885 E Musser Street, Carson City. The second-floor gallery is open Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm.

In this installation, Favela collaged imagery from famous animated films that depict Latin American culture. Using his signature “piñata style” Favela made large-scale murals with tissue paper and glue that broke down images from films like “The Three Caballeros”, “The Emperor’s New Groove” and “Coco”. These films celebrate Latin American culture but through the investigation of the imagery, Favela highlighted the exoticism and Hollywood fantasy that falsely represents an entire culture.

Favela makes work in a piñata style exploring his identity as a Latino from Las Vegas with Mexican and Guatemalan parents. He makes his work with traditional craft materials like tissue paper and cardboard, making anything from sculptures to large scale paper installations. A lot of his work is labor intensive and benefits from assistance and creative input from community members who help build and conceptualize his projects.

  • 13. Museums and galleries. Growing up near Washington DC I was blessed to have the @smithsonian @ngadc & @hirshhorn as a cultural playground.  I used to go walking around the galleries, looking deeply into the paintings, sketching, writing reactionary prose, trying to sense what each painter was telling me or what they made me feel. The first time I experienced the @friezeartfair I knew this art had a lot to say too, and like their predecessors they were an accumulation of their world and their lineage in the greater art scene. It was through modern art that I discovered that the cultural identity and political ethos within each artist were inseparable from their work. I appreciated what each artist had to say even more so in relation to the world in which they lived. 
Here’s me at the latest Miró exhibit at @themuseumofmodernart “The Birth of the World” — #Dadaism and #Surrealism stemmed from war and industrialization to name but a couple radical changes at that time, and the painters that lived through it, changed the world too. Today, we can feel remnants of loss or destruction in its sometimes-sparseness and symbology, but also an empowerment — of the painter and viewer alike.  Perhaps people become confounded by surrealism, but to compliment our desire for clarity or characterization, I think these artists demand a special time and space for each viewer to take hold of themselves and their own subconscious narratives that may develop upon each viewing. 
They are like a raging river of symbols and distorted forms that call out to us in their simplicity, but upon closer inspection, there is much life under the surface. And always, like that river, is never quite the same with each visit.
