Borderless: Latin America
Opening April 21st 7-11pm
Six of Latin America’s premier street artists converge in Los Angeles for Borderless: Latin America, an eye-popping exhibition at Gabba Gallery. Four Colombians, DjLu, Erre, Toxicoómano Callejero, and Lesivo, will show alongside Binho Ribeiro from Brazil and Iskar from Mexico. This exciting international collection, curated by Jason Ostro and Elena Jacobson, opens April 21.
The six artists’ distinct styles evolved on the streets of metropolises like Bogotá, São Paulo, and Mexico City. Now they channel the energy and complexity of life in those bustling urban centers onto the gallery walls of LA. Vibrant color, bold stencil-work, and fearless political commentary abound in this stunning celebration of Latin American street art.
During their stay in Southern California, the artists will also be painting murals throughout the region in collaboration with Gabba Alley Project, Smile South Central, and House of Trestles Street Artist in Residence program.
The opening night reception for Borderless: Latin America will take place Saturday, April 21 from 7-11pm. The event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. Music by Toshee. Bar sponsored by Humboldt Distillery and Auspicion Wine. Free parking behind 3125 Beverly Blvd. (enter off Dillon). Gabba Gallery is located at 3126 Beverly Blvd.
Borderless will be on view through May 12. After the opening, normal gallery hours are Weds-Sat 12-3pm or by appointment.
