videos by Adán De La Garza
Monday, September 18, 8pm
Filmmaker present! On tour from Denver!
Presented in partnership with Basement Films
“guesswork” is a mixture of performance for video, experimental narrative, experimental documentary, and video essay spanning the last 20+ years of work. The screening highlights Adán’s broad practice in approach but also subject matter ranging from the artist's teenage Jackass-like antics, surveillance culture, to speculative narratives surrounding the ramifications of climate change.
Adán De La Garza is an artist, co-conspirator, curator/programmer, and recovering academic. Usually in that order, depending on what job he’s applying for. Recent works have begun to examine the dire circumstances of late capitalism, the relationship between political and emotional stagnation, catharsis and protest, sonic warfare, and emerging futures brought about by climate change. Adán has shown all over the place and shook some hands. If you wanna see that proof you can check out his CV here.
Adán was a co-conspirator of the media arts exhibition series Nothing To See Here (2013-2016), is the sole member of the anonymous video screening series Collective Misnomer (2016 - present), smashes a lot of buttons putting on video game exhibitions with Dizzy Spell (2018 - present), and recently co founded the city wide video art biennial Denver Month Of Video (2023-present). Originally from Tucson Arizona, Adán is currently based in Denver, Colorado, where he hates writing in the third person.
