Zummertapez Video Mixtape screening
Roots & Culture
Following up the wonderful mixtape screening and performance of Chris Sullivan in June, Roots & Culture gallery is excited to present the second installment in our Zummer Tapez series, Victor Cayro. The goal for the Zummer Tapez screenings is to present work by a lineup of particularly interesting artists, and to provide these artists with a forum for a more social and entertaining artist talk. Each installment of the series features a VHS or MiniDV mixtape created specifically for the screening. The artists have been invited to create one-hour tapes that showcase their influences and interests as well as examples of their own work. Each artist will introduce his tape and provide comments during the screenings.
Comics artist Victor Cayro is a legend is his own time. His work has been featured in the compilations Kramer's Ergot and Project: Superior. His dense and meticulous drawings fuse gun-toting cybernetics with the worldview of an obsessive overgrown teenager, and evoke a peculiar but effective empathy. There's really no safe bets when Victor's tape hits the deck.
