CHI WARA HEADRESS (Bamana, Mali Republic)
Location: Living Room--Pygmalion, First Floor

Acquired this wonderful Chi Wara Headress through the Sept. 27, 2008 "Twiga at Twilight" dinner-auction benefiting the Safari West Wildlife Foundation. Here's info about the work:

To the Bamana people, farming is the most important and noblest profession. At planting time, men of the Chi-Wara association of farmers dance with headresses like these in the fields to honor Chi- Wara, the mythical "farming animal" that taught agriculture to the ancestors of the Bamana. The headdresses, always danced in male and female pairs, depict the antelope-like Chi-Wara and display the ingredients of successful cultivation. The long horns of the male Chi Wara stand for the tall growth of millet; the penis signifies the rooting of this grain. The long ears refer to the cultivators' listening to the songs sung by women who encourage the men while they work in the fields; the open, zigzag pattern in the neck symbolizes the sun's path along the horizon between the two solstices.

"INFORMAL ECONOMY VENDORS, #8" (2005) (ANALOG AND DIGITAL MEDIA RENDERED AND CUT ON VINYL MATERIAL) (1 OF 5) by JULIO CESAR MORALES
Location: Living Room, Pygmalion-First Floor

TWELFTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE

Julio Cesar Morales remains busy! First, he's been receiving rave reviews for his recent UNDOCUMENTED INTERVENTIONS exhibit at LACMA. Then, New Langton Arts just sent out this press release:

tomorrow is for those who can hear it coming
Julio César Morales
September 24 - October 25, 2008
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 24, 7-9pm

Related Event
Sonidero en vivo
Featuring Sonidero Renegado and Madame Borole with Policia Kamanney
Wednesday, October 22, 7-9pm
The Garage at New Langton Arts, 1246 Folsom Street
For other events and public programs see: www.newlangtonarts.org

The exhibition tomorrow is for those who can hear it coming features new video work, photographs, and sculpture by Julio César Morales exploring the complex early history of California, specially focusing on the transfer of Alta California from Mexico to the United States in the mid-1800's.

The focal point of the exhibition will be the premiere of Morales' new work Interrupted Passage, commissioned by Langton, a two-channel video that re-visits Mexican General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo's last hours in power and his subsequent arrest. Pounding at the door of Vallejo's home, the California militia demanded Vallejo surrender the land in the name of the United States. Vallejo invited the intruders into his home as guests where he prepared an all-day feast; following the meal, the Americans arrested and took Vallejo directly to jail.

Shot on location at Vallejo's Casa Grande in Sonoma, Morales reinterprets these events from both Mexican and American viewpoints sourced through found and official texts. Interrupted Passage is a loose reenactment of Vallejo's last hours in power, centered on the meal prepared and served by Vallejo's staff to the militia. The food served during the film was the result of research by chef and artist Max La Rivière-Hedrick, who, with Morales, did extensive historical investigation on the ingredients that existed at the time in the locale. The costumes were a result of Morales' collaboration with Mexican-born stylist Norma Listman, who used her knowledge of Mexican dress and fabrication techniques to create hybrid costumes of both historical and modern lineages. Accompanying the video are five large photographs that provide portraits and further detail of the characters and costumes presented in Interrupted Passage and a neon light work with a text from which the title of the exhibition is taken: "tomorrow is for those who can hear it coming."

Morales looks to the past in order to anticipate the present. His project looks at ways consciousness shifts as it moves between time, languages, cultures and political systems. By retracing history and focusing on peripheral narratives, using sampling and remixing as a strategy, Morales creates a deeper and more complex understanding of California and our contemporary times.

Related Events: Morales' interest in re-mixing history and music has also been explored in earlier works such as El Son Room , Que Rico El Mambo! , and Migrant Dubs , part of the exhibition Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement at the Los Angeles County Museum. Intertwined with Morales' exhibition, Langton presents in its newly added annex space, The Garage at Langton, a special event with guest Mexican Sonideros, Sonidero Renegado and Madame Borole with Policia Kamanney. Sonideros are a private enterprise of DJs who act as transnational messengers by traveling to towns from Mexico to the United States, delivering messages between laborers and loved ones through "shout outs." Bridging the gap between contemporary culture and the native culture left behind by the laborers, the Sonideros mix cumbia sounds with electronic effects.

In addition to the Sonideros, Langton also presents a weekly program of videos related to appropriation, taste and music selected by Julio César Morales. The selection includes works by artists Pedro Reyes, Artemio, Cao Fei, Anne McGuire, and a not-to-be-missed re-enactment of Tony Labat's infamous performance White Rice and Beans . As part of supporting our neighbors and connecting our communities, Langton presents a two-night screening of films selected by Morales at Terroir, the city's premiere wine bar for organic and ecologically grown wines. This screening will offer viewers the chance to see rare and hard-to-find films that inform and provide a better understanding of the artist's sources and inspirations. Details on all public programs and related events will be posted as they are annouced at www.newlangtonarts.org

After its premiere at New Langton Arts, Interrupted Passage will be featured as part of the upcoming California Biennial at the Orange County Museum, Newport Beach, CA and at LAXART, Los Angeles.
