Recap: John Crash Matos "A Loud Resonant Noise" at Camaradas El Barrio

By - Monday, June 11th, 2012

{image-13} Last Monday night Camaradas El Barrio in NYC hosted the opening reception for A Loud Resonate Noise by John “Crash” Matos. The exhibition features pieces by Crash which date to the period before 9/11. The exhibition curated by Fernando Ruiz Lorenzo, represents a bit of a departure for the legendary New York artist, in contradiction to the name of the show the pieces are actually quiet in many ways. Crash uses small canvas pieces that would be considered much more subtle than the artist’s usually bold combination of Classic NYC style and pop art. The combination of acrylic, silkscreen and aerosol pieces are all small microcosms of individual crashes. It is a different side of the artist but you can still identify the Crash style. The event was attended by the NYC graff community and also those who were in attendance for DJ Bobbito Garcia’s monthly dance party at Camaradas. After the reception the crowd danced the night away to tunes courtesy of the legendary DJ. Make sure to get up to Camaradas in Spanish Harlem and check out the exhibit which runs through June 30th. {image-7} {image-1} {image-3} {image-4} {image-5} {image-6} {image-8} {image-9} {image-10} {image-11} {image-12} {image-14} {image-15} Text: L.Swann Photo: Mick LaRock and L.Swann
