Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents Out of the Loop 289 a mixtape by Chris Marin at the TTU Satellite Gallery as a part of the August 2016 First Friday Art Trail. The exhibit will be on view from 6 PM – 9 PM, Friday, August 5th and by appointment through August 20th, 2016. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
Out of the Loop 289 is an exhibition, a mixtape, “packaged in a way to illustrate music as a blueprint…” says Marin. About the sculptural paintings in this exhibition, he shares, "Out of the Loop 289 is a conceptual and cohesive project that stands on the premise of access, race, class, and gender. Both literal and metaphorical, this short record tackles the elephant in the living room on a macro and micro scale.” The portraiture narratives in this exhibition re-contextualize master paintings and religion, while the viewer is meant to walk through a procession of emanate messages.
Born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. In May 2016 Chris Marin graduated with his BFA from Texas Tech University, and will start his master’s candidacy at California College of the Arts, in San Francisco. Marin has exhibited before on the First Friday Art Trail, BLNKA Exhibitions, and at artist-lead collective house shows.
The Texas Tech University Satellite Gallery at CASP/LHUCA is located at 1108 5th Street (5th street and Avenue J) in downtown Lubbock.
The exhibitions and speaker programs at the Landmark Arts and the Texas Tech University School of Art are made possible in part with a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation. Additional support comes from cultural activities fees administered through the Texas Tech College of Visual & Performing Arts. Support for Satellite Gallery exhibitions comes from the Ryla T. & John F. Lott Endowment for Excellence in the Visual Arts, administered through the School of Art.
