GALAXIA MYSTERIOSONEW -> We’re transforming the Galaxy Art Yard again this year… Here’s what you can look forward to -> The ‘Galaxia Mysterioso’. Curated by Matt Wagner of Portland’s Hellion Gallery, an imagined world with hand-painted murals, illustrations, and installations evoking a mysterious Latin-American carnival. Inspired by retro painted movie posters, vaudeville films, Mexican mural traditions, and old-school sideshow advertisements, Wagner will be working with Itze Gonzalez and Lorena Cofradía from Urbana México City to create these illusions, and will use video, projection, and lighting effects for deeper immersion. Expect vintage hand painted sideshow banners, a small mercado featuring food, coffee and art, live DJs & VJs cutting videos that are projected overhead, and of course, what kind of party would this be without a vintage sideshow attraction with a caged mythical beast?Curious? Come out and check it out!
