Opening Reception, TONIGHT!
The address is:
One Long Funeral Song
Featuring collaborative works by Monica Canilao and Kyle Ranson.
Friday, August 1, 8 pm
1026 Arch St. Second Floor, Philadelphia, PA
Space 1026 is pleased to present a collaborative installation by San Francisco Bay area artists, Monica Canilao and Kyle Ranson.
This body of work/instalation is the culmination of a longtime friendship and shared vision of Canilao and Ranson.
The artists sum up the idea of the show this way:
"One Long Funeral Song" addresses the clashes and minglings of two magicks. the black, vampiric conjurings of colonialism and the nature magic of indigenous, poor and creative peoples... the contrast between secret societies and open-armed, cooperitive communities. Monica Canilao and Kyle Ranson build a world around the hope that perhaps a third and beautiful magick could be born from this long and bloodied struggle.
