The work employs a mix of theatrical genres ranging from the slide lecture, the fashion show, the sculptural display, and the live musical act as a means to illustrate the fictional parallel world of the San San International, a “hallucinatory mega-convention of staggering proportions”. Conceived in 2008, this multisensory extravaganza has traveled to sites ranging from MOCA Los Angeles to Ballroom Marfa.
Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe create immersive environmental installations that play on ideas of drug culture, psychedelia, architecture and film. Beginning with their first official collaborative piece, Hello Meth Lab in the Sun, the artists have created a series of recurring narratives that are present throughout several connected works, most notably Black Acid Co-Op and Bright White Underground.
Black Bananas is the latest band from legendary frontwoman Jennifer Herrema and bandmates Brian Mckinley, Kurt Midness, and Nadav Eisenman. With sonic influences ranging from hair metal to digital funk to 70s bar bands, Black Bananas creates an unforgettable sound in their unmistakably unique voice.
