From the Chinese Buffet to the Texas Chainsaw Cemetery Cleanup: Your Four Day Marfa Weekend Starts Now

21 Feb 2013



Local musician Ross Cashiola brings his monthly WAR & CINEMA open mic to Padre’s. As he tells the Big Bend Sentinel, “I want this to be an easy platform for people to try out new songs and new things.” New things including but not limited to poetry, plays and “even stand-up comedy.”

There’s an opening reception for Chinati artist in residence MATT ROBERTS at the Ice Plant from 6-8pm — an excellent opportunity to pre-game War & Cinema while experiencing the artist’s “loose narrative that reawakens the sense of wonder for what is nearest.” Roberts “works primarily in sculpture, employing extra-sculptural gestures such as walking and mapping to form the dense web of his understanding of place.” Listen to a walk-through preview of the show on Marfa Public Radio.

The evening starts at 6p at Michael Strogoff, a new addition to the Marfa landscape from Ballroom’s Associate Curator Erin Kimmel and Nicolas Miller. JESSE SUGARMANN‘s Recent Work About The Big Three is part of a body of work that flows from the artist’s interest in “the way that car accidents function as instant monuments to traumatic events.”

And then it’s off to the aforementioned Psychic Ills meltdown happening at Padre’s at 9pm.
