Regeneration Opening

OCCCA

OCCCA’s new show “Regeneration” is tied explicitly to stem-cell therapy—in honor on UCI’s new stem-cell research center—and implicitly to all kinds of ideas about what “regeneration” can mean, as interpreted through photography and sculpture by local-ish artists who’ve shown worldwide. One immediately interesting entry comes from Lowrider Arte editor and photographer Edgar “OSOK” Hoill, best known for uncompromising street-level photography. He teams up here with illustrator Gregg Stone for a series exploring how the warrior philosophy of the Aztecs has reappeared (or “regenerated”) among the “Cholo counterculture of today.” This is a subject Hoill can attach to plenty of experience; look for something focused and powerful.
