Homebase is an interdisciplinary event series curated by Rebekah Hurst and Jacob Bissell that provides the pop-up gallery experience for those interested in new media art and experimental music practices.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Corporeal Landscapes is an exploration in space with special regard to the body. Site-specific installations and performances will manipulate the audiences perspective of the contemporary landscape, as augmented precepts act as an engagement with an individuals body, dictating how the audience moves through any given space. Corporeal Landscapes is produced through equal parts research, narrative device, mysticism, and experimentation, and aims to reflect that of the body in relation to it’s surroundings.

ABOUT SALA DIAZ
Sala Diaz, a 501© 3 exhibition space, is an experimental venue for contemporary art established in 1995. Located in the heart of the Cultural Arts District, Sala Diaz provides a unique venue for the exhibition of new and challenging work and fosters lasting exchange between our city and creative communities abroad. Housed in the same residential structure as the gallery, The Casa Chuck Residency is an invitational program through which Sala Diaz provides critics, curators and writers a haven for varied creative pursuits. Initiated in 2011, the residency honors the legacy of visionary artist, arts advocate, cultural maven and bon vivant Chuck Ramirez who died the previous year. Official residents spend one month living in Ramirez’ former abode, exploring and interacting with the surrounding arts community. Sala/Casa hosts a wide variety of arts professionals in-between residencies including critics, curators, musicians, scholars and visual artists.
