Sig’s Lagoon presents “Street Waves: New Screen Prints by Carlos Pozo”

“Street Waves” features 6 new prints by print-maker Carlos Pozo. “Street Waves” takes its title from a song by legendary 1970s post-punk band Pere Ubu. Pozo’s explosive, fragmented prints are heavily influenced by the high energy sound and collage aesthetic of late 1970s punk and post-punk music and graphic design. Appropriately enough, the exhibit is being held at a record store. Following the reception, Pozo’s band Raceway will perform live at The Continental Club along with friends Camera Cult and Young Girls.

Carlos Pozo is an artist, designer and musician born in Chile and working and living in Houston, Texas.

Opening reception is January 23, 6-8pm
exhibit runs until March 1
Sig’s Lagoon, 3622 Main Street (@Winbern) Ste E Houston, TX 77002 712.533.9525

followed by free performances at The Continental Club Houston, 3700 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002

This tribute exhibition has toured Cambodia, Ubud Writers Festival in Bali, Europe, Melbourne & Sydney and is now blasting off to The USA.
“Their name translates to Flower Sisters, but Indonesia’s first all-girl rock band Dara Puspita hardly cut an image of innocence in the 1960s with wild gyrations and throaty vocals that President Sukarno viewed as insane and later had them likened to Russia’s feminist punk group Pussy Riot” WSJ.
