Rolo Castillo’s Silkscreen Show
Saturday, March 17, 2012, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The dA Center for the Arts is proud to present: “Rolo Castillo’s Silkscreen Show.” Bringing together former T.A.Z. silk-screener Rolo Castillo, “South Park” writer Kyle McCulloch, and Cal-Poly Physics Professor Walter Christensen this event is one-part advanced silk screening workshop, and one part performance art. This workshop will take place on March 17, 2012 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the dA Center for the Arts in Pomona. Tickets will be available at the door for $25.00.
Master silk screener Rolo Castillo is best know as one-third of the art collective T.A.Z. During the 80’s and 90’s T.A.Z. produced silk-screened album covers and limited edition posters for punk and alternative bands including the Beastie Boys, Beck, Face to Face, L7, The Melvins, Nick Cave, and That Dog!. Castillo is also known for his improvisational and risk-taking curatorial style throughout the Greater Los Angeles region, including his role as interim curator at the dA Center for the Arts in 2008. Often setting up informal art shows in unlikely places, such as alleys and abandoned railroad docks, and bringing unexpected creative forces together, Castillo creates one-time only experiences.
In his tradition, Castillo curates this intensive workshop at the dA Center for the Arts that offers advanced techniques in silk-screening. He has invited Cal-Poly physics professor Walter Christensen to emcee the performance from a scientific standpoint, and South Park writer Kyle McCulloch to bring a non-technical, if not comedic aspect to the performance. This event is suitable for all levels of silk-screening students including those with little or no previous experience.
