12/20 Beehive Collective in Houston!



The Beehive Collective presents: MesoAmerica Resiste!--The struggle of diversity vs. homogenization in the Americas

Sedition is pleased to announce this appearance of the Beehive Collective in Houston. The Beehive has produced a series of amazingly intricate drawings that represent the struggles in the Americas using insects as an extended metaphor. The art is incredible but the politics behind the drawings is the real clincher! So come out and listen to Juan from the Beehive Collective. Bring $$ if you want to purchase posters or patches!
++++++++

This graphic takes a critical look at Project Mesoamerica (formerly "Plan Puebla Panama")- a development plan designed to facilitate the exploitation of resources by corporate interests in Central America, and transform much of its land to create more "efficient" trade routes for global markets. This plan is a threat to the very survival of unique and important ecosystems and traditional cultures. The presentation illustrates many inspiring and successful examples of resistance to this top down development through horizontal community based organizing.

The Beehive's graphics tell stories of resource extraction, militarization, and development in Latin America, drawing clear connections between the colonial history of the Western Hemisphere and contemporary patterns of corporate globalization, violence, and racism. Using these graphics as a springboard for discussion, the Beehive Collective works to analyze and dismantle the forces at work in our capitalist society through a metaphorical lens of stories from the natural world.

For the past several years, Bees have been touring the Americas and Europe with their graphics. With enormous, highly detailed, hand illustrated portable murals, a six foot tall fabric storybook, and an engaging narrative, the Bees have awed and inspired audiences with a presentation intended to be understood by anyone - not just the experts and political analysts!

ATTN: Visual Artists!

Now that I finally have my domain purchased I was wondering if anyone else would like me to help promote them? Not only do I have a plethora of space, but I'd also like to be able to help those with talent get some exposure even if it is just a little.

I had the idea of either setting up just a banner exchange or actually hosting mini online portfolios for people with links to their websites. If people don't have a website yet I'd also be happy to aide in hosting the entire online gallery and make sales with a small percentage of sale commission. As much as I'd like to be an art dealer/broker I'm far from it right now. I already have an SSL certificate, business license and the other necessary things to do this.

So, if you have any sort of visual art; paintings, digital, prints, t-shirts, sculptures, clothing, etc., let me know if you are interested. You can post a comment here or email me at th3filth@gmail.com or boticario.de.arte@gmail.com .

My Art

I am not sure what it is just yet.
I paint, draw, photograph.. all that jazz. Well enough to get noticed.
I dont like to though, most of the time.
I wanted to be a lawyer...
Dropped that like mad quick.
Going out to be a hair stylist.
I think that will be my art.
The hair and the makeup.

ANYWAY.
I am here cause I live near houston for a new months more and I figure I may as well make the best of it.

Love
Jen
