The collaborative video Viral Underground that Rey Parla and I made will be in this show:

On Saturday, March 31st, Osiel Rojas proudly presents No Ends a one night only group show at No Romance. The beautifully dark exhibition features a dozen artists with works varying in media, subject matter. These artists are of varying backgrounds, locations, and points of view, but all share a very basic need to make ends meet has served as a jumping off point for each piece featured in the show. While some pieces directly capture the disparity, violence, and angst of these overloaded abstract times others capture hybrid parallel emotions that may to a degree expose the artists process and intentions for a few hours. The ambiguity of this coming together is as fleeting as any New York City night, and less about a cohesive theme, and more about seizing the now.

No Ends demonstrates that in difficult times the possibilities of making and producing are the source of the artists inspirations, visions, and sustainability, as chaos seems to command the future and the present.
