Los Angeles, CA (August 15, 2022) – With the community at the heart of their mission, the Nomad Blvd team presents its brick and mortar space Nomad Gallery with the art film exhibition titled _gen+esc (generation+escape) by Rabi. This simultaneous debut of Nomad Gallery and Rabi’s collection of works is a collaboration between new cross-genre media and an experiential space that work together to transcend traditional boundaries, both in a gallery format and in a body of work. of works.

_gen+esc is a series of short art films that explores the relationship between identity and the artistic process. Each short-format film questions the role of the image in personal stories and reinvents the embodiment of the self, depicting a world freed from conventional postures. Each piece features an artist in a green suit sharing his innermost spaces and thoughts while a multitude of visual references that echo the onslaught of media overload are superimposed on his figure. As they discuss themes of identity, belonging, process, and coping with global change, commonalities of escapism and contradiction arise between them all. These videos, displayed on WHIM digital art canvases, provide a window into the exploration of identity and artistic process.

_gen+esc opens September 15, 2022 and will remain on view until October 15, 2022. Episodes can be watched here throughout the show and beyond.

About Rabi

Rabi (born 1984 David Emanuel Mordechai Torres) is a Puerto Rican and Polish-born LatinX visual artist from Los Angeles, California. As the child of two immigrants, Torres quickly found solace in the multifaceted atmosphere of American life. Themes of contradiction, duality and socio-political philosophy dominate his aesthetic. He is well known for being the co-founder of the art collective CYRCLE, which gained international notoriety and enabled him to convey his love of public art and installation to a wider audience. Rabi’s works can be seen in public and private collections, including those of Shepard Fairey, Ari Emanuel, Sean Combs, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico, MOCA Detroit, MGM Grand in Las Vegas, The Art of Elysium and the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans.
