Sub-Alterity is a touring exhibition of underground art, concept-driven and featuring nine unique, visionary artists from Los Angeles, Long Beach, and abroad. The paintings, installations, and multi-media presentations collectively and independently express the contradictory, boundary-shattering urban[organic] consciousness.
Collectors, businesses, and bohemians are invited to view, discuss, and purchase the works presented at Sub-Alterity. Refreshments provided by local sponsors, real music from live musicians and DJs as well as installations and activities.
The urban environment is commonly depicted as opposing nature and visa versa, but in actuality, the organic world is continuously creeping into the vast networks of human planning and concrete. Similarly we, as artists, perpetually cross cultural borders and challenge our society’s guarantee of a static and one-sided reality.
Curated and presented by Rowynn Michelle Dumont, international experimental arts guru, and Michaël Veremans, LA underground connoisseur as part of the next generation of fine arts. Kyle Veremans is on booking, bringing with him Feed the Feeble, Wild Pack of Canaries, Wreck and Slender, Dj Dakar, the best underground bands and Djs in the scene. Virag Desaai and Clay Cooper are the resident digital designers, busting out fresh graphics and repping the concept.
We are creatively exploring, interpreting, and transmiting the seemingly contradictory webs of information, external events, and internal developments that make up the ever evolving consciousness of our age.
2nd City Council Art Gallery + Performance Space is a bright and area facility housed in a former tin shop in the Long Beach East Village Arts District, across the street from the Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA). 2cc is a non-profit gallery established to support the arts and local culture development through education and expression.
The Mezz in Los Angeles occupied the second story ballroom of the Alexandria, overlooking Gallery Row, which illuminates the entire downtown area with artists and enthusiasts the second Thursday of every month. Complete with Victorian decorative fixtures, a stage, and full bar, this place redefines classy with a dark, artsy, thoroughly underground (though it is above ground) vibe.
