Third Thursdays: Vox Urbana & Screening

November 16, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Third Thursday
Thursday, November 16th
6:00pm – 8:00pm

MOCA will be open for FREE to the public from 6pm-8pm every THIRD THURSDAY. These themed nights will feature different performances, music, and artmaking activities, as well as a cash bar.

Join MOCA Tucson for an evening of music & screenings with local cumbia band Vox Urbana and artist Wesley Fawcett Creigh. Vox Urbana will be creating music from interviews with immigrants, these transnational narratives merge Latin-based sounds with a rich variety of electronic textures. We will be screening new work by Wesley Fawcett Creigh in collaboration with MOCA Tucson Youth Programs, Pima Community College Border Cultures class, and Ondrea Levey’s Art Appreciation class at Tucson High School. This project is an experiment in intergenerational art-making and an examination of how these 3 groups view and understand the complexities of living near the U.S./Mexico border. Wesley Fawcett Creigh organizes these visual, written, and audio responses into a video animation to engage and expand public awareness of the effects the border has on our greater community.
