Everything's Going to be Okay - Young Latin American Artists 13

Opening Reception – Friday, October 3, 2008
Reception – 7:00-9:00 PM
Performance by Carlos Rosales-Silva – 8:00 PM

Mexic-Arte Museum
419 Congress Avenue Austin, TX 78701

Everything's Going to be Okay
illustrates how moments of vulnerability can turn into our greatest strengths. The artists in this exhibition do not define themselves by the blood running through their veins or their ancestral history, but rather their personal histories. This exhibition, in its 13th year, features and challenges young Latino artists under the age of 35 to create and present their vision in a reexamination of social and aesthetic norms with new and experimental media.

EIHITV is a new public access series created in part by local artist
collective The Totally Wreck Production Institute. With influences
ranging from The Electric Company and Solid Gold to TV Party and MTV,
EIHITV presents a variety show experience promoting a neofuturefringe
community and active art/music/performance/video/et cetera
experimentation via the medium of television. The first episode (which
we will be screening) features a live studio performance by dance diva
Tummy Toast, animation by art collective Paper Rad, and more. The
preview gathering will also include music by DJ Jaunty, refreshments,
and hot raffle prizes!

EIHITV will air Sundays at 7pm on Channel 16, from October through January.
