Gabie Strong's solo show at Angels Gate

Check out Gabie's solo show My War at Angels Gate Cultural Center

March 18 - April 20, 2012

MY WAR is a transdisciplinary research project investigating the influence of the Cold War on the built environment and social culture of Southern California, with outcomes rendered in photography, drawing and sound. Presented as a site-based installation to form a spatial dialectic of Pure War in the Southland, MY WAR diagrams the contemporary So Cal uncanny vis-à-vis a systematic portrayal of imperialist affect on the increasingly abject condition of the everyday.

Helga Fassonaki
Touching Them Touching Me – A Love Song for the Dead C
March 24th – April 22nd
Human Resources
410 Cottage Home St 
Chinatown, 90012

Helga has created an incredible installation featuring an imagined and studied site of the origins for the NZ post-punk band the Dead C, transforming the gallery itself into a discursive site of sound, smell, drink (and friendships made from noise).

Helga has additionally curated a three day performance series of epic sonic proportions titled  Trapdoor Fucking Exit at the closing of her exhibition (April 20-22). You won't want to miss it!

Human Resources is pleased to present Touching Them Touching Me – A Love Song for the Dead C, a solo show by Helga Fassonaki from March 24th through April 22nd with an opening reception on March 24th from 7pm-10pm.  The show closes the weekend of April 20th to the 22nd with Trapdoor Fucking Exit, a performance series, featuring the live performances by Fassonaki and other artists influenced by the legendary New Zealand underground rock band, the Dead C.
