Event Details

Join then during Oakland’s First Friday events on January 8th for an artist talk from 7-8pm and a zine release. Erik Parra will be talking about his work in his current solo show “Each Devil His Own” on view at Transmission Gallery.

“Each Devil His Own” is an exhibition of paintings, drawings and a site specific installation that draws on tropes of the horrific, mid-century aesthetics and politics to ask questions about the origins of certain current sociopolitical narratives in the vernacular of pictorial construction. In three small series of original compositions Parra conflates his personal history and knowledge with mid-century historical narratives in order to view important, current social concerns through the lens of history. This serves as an entryway into a process of constructing images that draw on your conceptions of space and the stories you tell yourselves in order to navigate the environments you build.
