Los Angeles-based artist Juan Capistran discusses his past work as well as the process of creating new work for a Visual Arts Center exhibit. Inspired by the practice of illicitly recording and distributing music, Capistran appropriates canonical artworks and transforms them through literary and music references; he considers his art practice to be a form of visual "bootlegging."
In his exhibition "What We Want, What We Believe: Towards A Higher Fidelity," his process yields visual anthems of resistance that speak to the political realities of marginalized communities in the United States. [Exhibition, Lecture/talk, Everyone]
