This blog post is for those who see this blog, but not the El Imagenero facebook page, or the text in an email I sent out to many.
Digital versions of approximately 90 photographs of Long Beach and Southern Alta-California, Baja California, and Jalisco and Guanajuato are currently on display at Utopia Good Food and Fine Art in Long Beach. The images are in three distinct sets, and displayed separately, organized by location. The three sets of photos are displayed on three digital monitors simultaneously, creating juxtapositions among realities in the three locations, some of which surprised me, and may surprise you. Because the order of each display is random, and there are different numbers of images in each group, it is unlikely anyone will ever see the exact same juxtaposition at any other time. On June 23, 2017 Utopia will host a “closing” event with appetizers, a no-host wine bar, and Joe Zamberlin on piano (this is a real treat, see, https://www.facebook.com/FocusPoint/videos/10154753536841219/).
The Location is Utopia Good Food and Fine Art, First and Linden in Long Beach, California, 90802.
Date and Time are June 23, 2017, from 7-9:30pm
