NOT FESTIVAL: &everyone&nomadic&queer&artist&latino&immigrant&black&other&everyone&

Created by Luis Lara Malvacías / 3RD CLASS CITIZEN and presented in collaboration with the UC Riverside Department of Dance

February 24 – March 3, 2018

this is NOT a FESTIVAL

The project is a multidisciplinary event pursuing a deeper investigation of the cultural, aesthetic and social complexities embedded in the word “Alterity,” which in itself defies a simple definition: it equally defines both difference and otherness.

The invited participants are directly or indirectly working with this subject matter and experimenting with different forms of performance art, installations, video and dance. The artists themselves, as well as guest lecturers and scholars, will be in charge of lectures, workshops and discussions to widen the scope of this unique meeting.

The event will be presented under the umbrella of The Institute of Global Longing, and it will embrace: the strange, the unconventional, the unaccountable and the unfamiliar. For many years – and even more so today – conservative groups and societies have discriminated against individuals that in many ways are seen as part of, or belonging to, these groups. At first glance, it includes immigrants, queers, people of color, and artists living and working on the margins of society. However, the interdisciplinary offerings will move beyond issues of gender, identity, and sexuality to deal with a larger range of social and aesthetic concerns.

The idea is to create an 8-day event, to offer a dynamic platform and to have an outreach to the larger community of Riverside and the nearby cities.

About

The 3RD CLASS CITIZEN was created in 2003 initially formed with a focus on dance, visual arts, and New Media. This collective was comprised of a wide range of artists from the growing Latino populations living and working in New York. The organic nature of the project allowed it to evolve and change and steadily become more inclusive. Today, its collective nature also encourages the interaction of artists, musicians, designers and choreographers from different cultural backgrounds and various media. One of the ways in which the collective has grown is the NOT FESTIVAL.

The NOT FESTIVAL is a kaleidoscopic nomadic multi-disciplinary conceptual object that embraces the ideas of global artistic collaboration and the cross-cultural, interdisciplinary attitudes. Through the presentation of the work of international and local artists and scholars, it aims to stir, excite, present and ask questions about social and political issues, contemporary creation and artistic process. It is open to anyone who is interested in becoming part of a melting pot of ideas and aesthetics. Local participating artists are encouraged to play an active role in managing and facilitating it and to use their creativity not only in their work but also in the creation of the event itself. This ambiguity, the in-between-ness and the mutually beneficial relationships among the different people involved are some of the most intriguing and fascinating features that can emerge from this experience. Thus it is Not a Festival.
