Mexico City’s Saner has a solo show coming up this month in LA at New Image Art Gallery. Catharsis, curated by Medvin Sobio, opens October 27th from 6-9pm. Saner is one of Mexico’s most interesting contemporary muralists, but he has also brought his work indoors in a much more creative and beautiful way than the average street artist/muralist. There will be a performance aspect to the opening, so it’s definitely one to try to check out on opening night rather than waiting until the crowds have dispersed. For some idea of why Saner’s openings are special, he had a show at Medvin’s gallery in the summer of 2011 where all the work was given away for free and Saner acted as though he was being held hostage in the gallery.
Catharsis runs through November 24th.
