The MexiCali Biennial and the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture of the Riverside Art Museum present Riverside Arts Walk activities including a performance by Rancho Shampoo and Indian Dub Orchestra. There will also be a paper making demonstration and activity led by artist Fred Brashear, Jr. Artswalk is March 2, 2023 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Rancho Shampoo will perform at 7:00 pm. Events and activities are FREE.
Rancho Shampoo and the Indian Dub Orchestra (Guillermo Estrada, Rubén Alonso Tamayo, Rodo Ibarra, Julián González, David Bautista Toledo) is a group of “Aliendígenas” from the border regions of California and Mexico. This experimental musical performance explores identities through the concept of aliendigenismo, or the shifting/transcendance of a person or group through real and spiritual borders, territories, physical bodies and realities.
Fred Brashear, Jr. will lead a paper making demonstration. Participants can decorate squares of handmade paper with wildlife stamps which echo themes in the artist’s solo exhibition currently on view at the San Bernardino County Museum, a special project of the MexiCali Biennial’s program Land of Milk & Honey titled Handle with Care.
The Riverside Artswalk is a monthly community event that celebrates the diversity of arts and culture in Riverside and the Inland Empire. Visit over 22 downtown locations, including museums, galleries and studios, presenting an eclectic mix of visual and performing arts.
