To inaugurate the spring 2010 exhibit, In Lieu of Unity, Ballroom Marfa will host a weekend of festivities including an opening reception on Friday 26 March, 7-9pm; artists’ talks on Saturday 27 March, 1pm; and a live music performance by the Mexican Institute of Sound on Saturday evening, 9pm.

Mexican Institute of Sound is an electronic music project created by Mexico City-based DJ and producer Camilo Lara. As the creative force behind the M.I.S., Lara’s music–a melding of cumbia, hip-hop, mambo, folk, electronica, and traditional Mexican music–has established him as a rising star in both in his native Mexico and north of the border. AllMusic described their last album as “an infectious mix of vintage Mexican pop and dance records from the 1920s through the ’60s–including samples from classic Esquivel sides–with modern loops and beats.”
