Sebastian Hernandez will be creating FTZ, a long-term research and performance-based artwork that will take place at Angels Gate Cultural Center in 2017. FTZ will critically engage the history of San Pedro as a main trading port on the west coast, its relationship to the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement and the widespread ramifications of global capital on the city of Los Angeles. He will ground the work with further material, sourcing from his personal lived experience as a queer brown body contending with notions of space, power, ephemerality and reclamation. Scores and gestural actions will be set based off research findings to influence the materiality, movement, sound and installations. Hernandez will present the closing performance on December 17th at 5pm in Building H.
