Curatorial Statement

We are here now.

And transcending now, towards the celestial plane.

So we celebrate.

Celebrate our entrance to the future of the celestial realm, breaking through yesterday’s crumbling walls of lockdowns and chains of fear.

Celebrate the magnitude, the cosmic scale, the amazing things that have transpired over last year. People and power united.

Celebrate glimpses of dynamic moments, of sudden experiences and thoughts, shining like sparks from the seismic changes and clashes in meaning.

Celebrate spectacular movements and ideas that have come to life, and celebrate them all with a specially selected group of artists and with the supernatural spirits of Papi Juice.

Celebrate the time of the longest days and the warmest nights, which are ours, which we own from now into the future we are making.

BOFFO & OCDChinatown celebrates the visions of vital young talent that paves new ways and new meanings, that transcends old conditions and expectations.

We Are Here. Come Celebrate.
