The Virginia Beach exhibition marks a return to the East Coast for the California Locos, who also exhibited at the 2014 Context Art Miami art fair, where they reached an international audience. Represented at Art Miami by Mat Gleason of Coagula Curatorial, California Locos have also exhibited at Red Pipe Gallery in Chinatown with curators Tracy Huston and Duncan Linthicum, as well as at Zack de la Rocha’s Medina Gallery.
A collective, dynamic show, the amazing synthesis of the California Locos artists’ work explores these artists’ remarkable roots and continued profound cultural influence.
Curator of the Virginia Beach show, artist Asa Jackson of the Contemporary Arts Network noted, “with all the planning that has gone into bringing the Locos to the East Coast, we are gearing up for eight solid days of controlled creative chaos — from events, parties and openings, to music, panel discussions and more. We intend to continue the success they had in Venice Beach!”
