Los Angeles-based artist, Amara Higuera Hopping, searches for the (in)audible realm as a liberatory site and investigates what arriving at an emancipatory prospect might sound like. This event explores sound, not only as artistic research but also as a reading of forthcoming writings from a photo essay book by Higuera Hopping, titled the west awaits no one

The evening will be hosted by the Los Angeles-based curator, Paulina Lara, who will moderate a conversation between Anna Cho-Son and Amara Higuera Hopping. Together they will discuss the parallels in their work, their interpretations of new freedoms, and what, when personhood has been pre-assigned, can be subverted or made possible through visual and auditory explorations; and their translations into text or written forms.   

Los Angeles experimental producer, dj, and performer Soltera will also DJ a set throughout the evening. 

the west awaits no one will be available for pre-order from 5. Dec via and it will be published by RSS Press in March 2021.

Amara Higuera Hopping [IG @amarahiguera] lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work engages a lens-based practice to explore how images (still and moving) shape the histories and interpretations of people and places. She has been writing and making sound works as a practice of personal exorcism and artistic research. 

Anna Cho-Son [IG @annachoson] is an artist currently at UCLA for a BA in Fine Arts and a minor in Food Studies. These days she is exploring ideas of being and sound through notions of consumption and the metabolic, focusing on text and performance. Her writing practice is a way some part of her thinks, a part she would like to be closer to.

SOLTERA [IG @soltera818] is a producer, dj, and performer based in Los Angeles. She is self-taught, learning how to make beats, play keys, and write/sing. She is the co-founder of CASA/TECA, an underground record label in Los Angeles.

Paulina Lara [@lapau3_] is an independent curator, writer, and events producer based in Los Angeles, California. She has worked with museums, galleries, nightlife venues, and recurring parties across California, including One Archives at USC, Coaxial Art Gallery, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Mustache Mondays. Most recently, she co-curated an exhibition, We Live! Memories of Resistance, in collaboration with In Plain Sight and Oxy Arts Gallery at Occidental College.
