Collaboration with rene yanez


the wish of a dying man for his final gallery show. 400 people showed up to honor him and take part in the virtual reality portion of this interactive gallery installation.

Rene Yanez was a well-known artist, activist, curator, producer and an icon. For years, he both collaborated with and promoted the work of many talented visual and performing artists and at times appears to be œin the shadow. I, then Padilla, had the opportunity to work with him during his final weeks battling cancer as we collaborated on this show. From street art to virtual reality, collaborations and interactive works, Into the Fade spotlighted some of Yanez' work as one series fades or melts into the other.
