LOLO Y LAUTI: RAINBOW HIGH
June 30th - July 28th 2018
Are Lolo y Lauti kidding? Silly is the new stupid in Rainbow High, their upcoming show at Queens.
This exhibition from the performance/video collective from Buenos Aires is their first US show and will present a collection of videos that highlight their take on song and dance appropriation.
In the video “iSEXY: Collector’s Edition”, a two-channel interpretation of their 2017 performance that became a bonafide meme, they see VR sex politics as sci-fi choreography.
For their new piece “Dragonfly” (in collaboration with Uruguayan artist Rodrigo Moraes), they examine a Thatcherite pop song in a warehouse winter spectacular. They might be showing a third video shot in LA but they also might not so they’d rather not spoil it.
Lolo y Lauti can’t wait to celebrate the independence of your nation by ranting about context
