Silos II: Inter/action & Noche Roja
Buffalo Bayou Silos Series as part of Transported + Renewed
Co-sponsored by Buffalo Bayou Partnership

Visual artist Allison Hunter’s latest video installation Inter/action draws comparisons between human and insect behavior and reflects on how various species go about creating community. FrenetiCore Dance fuses fiery Spanish dance and music by Solero Flamenco with daring contemporary choreography.

Silos II kicked off with live music from La Sien, presented by Lunaface Promotions, infusing Spanish pop rock with jazz, blues and funk. Throughout the evening, female Houston street artists Anat Ronen, Royal, Clear1, Lady Binx and Lee Carrier joined forces to showcase their talents; flow artists Agent Cilantro, Alie Rose and MX Tr3y of Mental Dexterity Special Operations and Punk Rock Hoops created a party atmosphere with roaming dance and illuminated float arts; and HTX Bike Fest, The Byke Project and Black Gold Cycling showed off their freestyle bike stunts. In addition, Silos II featured cocktails crafted by East End’s own Voodoo Queen alongside Ladybird, The Modular and MoonRooster‘s delicious menus.

Got a chance to hang out with graffiti artists Angel Quesada (Art Kungu) and Daniel Anguilu, while they were installing new art at Frenentic Theater in Houston’s East End. Performance artist YE Torres also came by to add fire to the process.

“Articulated Energy”. Yin and Yang Dragons.

Also did a Stop-Motion Time-Lapse video of the whole process.

It was rained out, and rescheduled to coincide with another HAA sponsered event. Turned out was a bit thin, but sheer enthusiasm made up for the lack of numbers.

Different water vehicle types gathered at Allens’ Landing, from art boats to barely floatable types to can that even float types. They paddled few miles upstream to across Tony Marron Park, where the Buffalo Bayou Shrimp Festival was held.

It is also important to note that the weather was spectacular.
