RackCard_web

UPDATE: THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED. MORE NEWS WHEN WE GET IT.

MUZEO will present Con Safos (With Respect): The Art and Culture of Urban Chirography, an exhibit dedicated to the evolution and aesthetic of graffiti and how this ubiquitous art form has evolved to reflect urban culture, beginning January 31. Con Safos will highlight a wide body of works by contemporary graffiti artists whose discipline and practice have expanded from the street into galleries and mainstream culture. A Chicano (Cholo) term invoking the meaning of respect, Con Safos is mostly written as “C/S” on tags (placasos), graffiti art pieces, and murals. “By writing the C/S motif, one is invoking that the art work or tag needs to be shown the ultimate level of respect.” Canote continues, “I want Con Safos to not only address the often marginalized lifestyle, but the positivity behind a frowned upon, yet, highly appropriated culture and how it played a significant role in creating a part of Los Angeles’ urban identity.”

The exhibit will feature a documentary “Con Safos Project” narrated by Frank ‘Kiko’ Sifuentes aka Mr. Con Safos, cofounder of Con Safos Magazine, on the true meaning of Con Safos - The C/S Project; hand-picked art by rehabilitated inmates from various prisons; and Mr. Cartoon’s 1937 Chevrolet coupe pickup.
