Curated by Ann Berchtold. Artist: Perry Vasquez
Perry Vasquez will present his new work, The Gates of Heck, an audio-visual adaptation of Dante’s Inferno updated with contemporary references to comic books, rock ‘n’ roll music and immigrant crossing narratives. The work considers Hell as the ultimate borderland – a place where mortality and immortality collide and myth and reality come face to face.
Collaborator Aaron McFarland will immerse the audience in his monumentally scaled video projections culled from diverse sources. Additional video editing by Farrah Emami will complete the show. PerryVasquez.com
