Please join us in celebrating the New Year with ROMPE PUESTO, a one-night, celebratory performance event highlighting and deconstructing piñatas created by 22 NYC artists. Participants are invited to take a swing in hopes of collecting the artistic contents inside each piñata.
The opening will be held on Friday, January 8, 2010 from 7 – 10 p.m. and is organized by Blanka Amezkua & Ronny Quevedo, with sounds by DJ Juan Mapu.
Damali Abrams, Fanny Allie & Jun Aizaki, Gabriela Alva Cal y Mayor, Daniel Bejar, Melissa A. Calderón, Alex Campaz, Brendan Carroll, Abigail Deville, Oasa Duverney, Michelle Frick, Irvin Morazan, Ivan Monforte, Las Hermanas Iglesias, Laura Napier, Wanda Ortiz, Olek & Blanka Amezkua, Risa Puno, Kenya Robinson, Jorge Rojas, Jessica Rosen, Ronny Quevedo, Mary Valverde.
ROMPE PUESTO loosely translates into “breaking ground.” In this scenario, the artists and the organizers use the cathartic act of celebration to foster
new alternatives to exhibit, perform, congregate, and collaborate.
