October 12 - December 1, 2019
A solo exhibition and installation by Mario Ybarra Jr.
“The installation resembles a hybrid-butcher shop/musical stage set, with hams and cuts of meat made of wood. The piece was originally shown at ARCO Madrid 2013 and the presentation at Southwest School of Art will be its first in the U.S.
Mario Ybarra, Jr., is a visual and performance artist, educator, and activist who combines street culture with fine art in order to produce what he calls “contemporary art that is filtered through a Mexican American experience in Los Angeles.” He has received critical acclaim for site-specific urban interventions that often bring to light little-known aspects of a particular location’s cultural history.”
Opening: October 12, 2019 | 4–7 pm
