Since we just announced our big BURST! into Artisphere art party for October, we figured we could spend this week looking at some of our favorite music/art videos by artists we’d have come perform if money/time constraints were not an object.
We kick off Miguel Calderon’s clip for ‘Deiciseis’ (Sixteen) by (one of my favorite groups around) Los Super Elegantes (which was featured in the ‘Playback’ is an exhibition at the Musée d’Art Moderne). To quote Cluas: “There’s something for everyone: music fans can appreciate the fine song, video-lovers will dig the funny, warm-hearted storyline (lowlife boy runs off with nice girl, while her mother disapproves), while modern art theorists can consider Calderon’s use of images of rubbish and riches. But be careful – you can’t dance and think at the same time“:
