The Razor's Edge will be screening as a part of the alternative art fair event, December 12th and 13th, in collaboration with ShipInTheWoods.
Contemporary art fair arrives and sets up shop the weekend of December 12-13th, 2015, at Horton Plaza Mall. An architectural venture based on Ray Bradbury's essay The Aesthetics of Lostness, this mall has been described as "a temple where we can all tilt our faces to the sun," with "more angles than a train wreck - a multilayer maze of walkways, stair steps, terraces, bridges, arches, pillars, beams, and cupolas." We invited local artist-run and alternative gallery spaces as well as artists, poets, and musicians to participate in DATE NIGHT, offering them booths and walls; some chose to work without walls.
Through a generous invitation from the San Diego Art Institute we have had the pleasure of programming an event in an unused storefront. Collectively we decided to use this as an opportunity to pass sections of space and air wave across mvwbers of a community that often feels dispersed, fragmented, and decisively liminal. And what a more fitting location than the mall?! A place for the misfits, the disjointed, and the dislocated to reclaim and hang out in full anti-capitalist critique! Contrary to contemporary mall critique, at this mall, ambient sources of aesthetic arousal amplify to keep the customer coming. Intrepid spaces are: Carla, Friend's Collective, Helmuth Project, Poderes Unidos, A Ship in the Woods, Space 4 Art, SPF15, TARP Reform, UAG, Untitled Space.
