Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola | Projections Promenade
October 14, 2017 | 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
GAC invites you to join artist Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola for a sunset performance and cruise through downtown Galveston during ArtWalk. Through large-scale projections of text and images, Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola investigates the interplay of language and environments, creating an open-ended dialogue between image and viewer through motion, language, color, and form. Equipped with mobile projections from a moving car, Pablo transforms familiar environments though transparency, multiplicity, and fragmentation, and allowing viewers to experience them in a new context.
The performance will circulate via the route indicated on the map below throughout the evening. The numbers represent ArtWalk locations. Pick up an ArtWalk brochure for details.
The route will circulate from Galveston Arts Center at the corner of 22nd and Strand south towards Mechanic >>> East on Mechanic to 20th >>> North on 20th to Strand >>> West on Strand to 23rd >>> South on 23rd to Post Office >>> East on Post Office to 20th >>> North on 20th to Mechanic >>> West on Mechanic to 26th >>> South on Mechanic to Market >>> East on Market to 22nd>>> North on 22nd to Strand…repeating throughout the evening from sunset to 9:30 PM.
