News and Online Community for Culver City - The New Scene
Luis De Jesus Gallery in Culver City announced that its 2012 fall season will open with the premiere of "Chinese Democracy and the Last Day on Earth", a new epic animated film by 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship award recipient and social provocateur Federico Solmi. The gallery-wide exhibition, which will include related paintings, will run from September 8 through October 20, 2012. An artist's reception will be held on Saturday, September 8th, from 6 to 9 p.m.
According to the announcement, “Federico Solmi's acclaimed animated videos aim to lampoon and condemn a male dominated, hierarchal world -- in particular, corrupt, arrogant and hypocritical dictators, politicians, business and religious leaders, and other egomaniacal mad men who are portrayed as the main perpetrators and cause behind the decline of the human race."
