DZC: Speaks at SAMA

This takes me back, Got a chance to catch up with David Zamora Casas, as he was getting ready to present himself as only he can. He was preparing to speak about his body of work that spans from 1985 to present, his various personas; Nuclear meltdown, is the one i remember most, their were others. You see I have known David since 1986, travelling the art circles and art openings in San Antonio. we had similar aesthetics and found ourselves in 1990 founding a art space called The Anti-Oppression Church of Hard-Core Folk Art. located on Ave E., near the Alamo. It was a breeding ground for art, street performance, pefrormance art and happenings
that generated alot of buzz and art patrons, at the time these were the spaces we gathered in,
since we were shunned from the traditional art institutions and not given an opportunity to show our work, therefore creating a art salon in our separate spaces, we also called home.
Hearing these references to the things we were doing as artist back then, just makes it all the more important that we document our work-in-progress. I have a feeling me and David might collaborate in the future as we did in the past, we are just much wiser..we hope.
