COORDINATES: ICE PAC features installations from the Sacramento region’s most influential and celebrated artists. Situated in the former PACSAT satellite news broadcast headquarters, this immersive art experience will be open to the public for a limited time before the building is demolished for new development on the land.


COORDINATES are site-specific transitory exhibitions that bring attendees outside of the art world’s traditional white cube institutions by using vacant and underutilized spaces for creative inquiry.

​During an era of urban development in Sacramento, this project aims to reclaim the use of land and space for artistic activation. Over THIRTY artists are selected and given one month to transform the .73 acre lot and push the boundaries of material and concept. Coordinates: Ice Pac will be further evidence that Sacramento’s creative community is worthy of investment.

Examples of Installations inside Coordinates: Ice Pac that featured 35 artists.

During an era of urban development in Sacramento, these artists share our goal to reclaim the use of land and space for artistic activation. These artistic shepherds address the importance of the arrangement of the natural and artificial physical features of an area in which to combat capitalist dispersion of the land. These artworks reclaim the use of the land for public leisure and education to understand the elements that structure the world around us to raise the questions of environmental sustainability, justice, and geologic formation.
Home can be a liminal space where we can create an extension of ourselves in a deeper relation to our emotional bodies. In this space artists address that question on how we experience our emotional bodies with those we invite into our intimate spaces, and how they affect our perception of what we call home. These artists shared one of the most intimate areas of the exhibition by closely neighboring each other inside of a larger suite. The main entrance to their exhibition introduced you with a welcome mat usually found in front of houses to signify to the visitor that they had entered another realm of reality.

The Shadowbox

1610 R St, Sacramento, CA 95814 alley across from Device Brewing CO patio

The Shadowbox, curated by Genesis “the Mayor” Torres, is a contemporary art space that serves as an intimate experience between the artist and the dynamic Sacramento art community by showcasing a survey of their artistic and conceptual practices. The Shadowbox aims to be an art space that allows Sacramento artists a place to share their innovations with the public in one of the most stunning gallery spaces in Downtown, Sacramento, the Faith J. Mckinnie Gallery. The roster of creators showcasing at The Shadowbox are artists that are currently shaping the Sacramento art scene in new and intriguing ways.

Heavier than Air

On March 13th, 2020, Sacramento State, where I teach, announced that all classes would be virtual for the remainder of the spring semester. That same day, my father was admitted to the hospital 3,000 miles away with COVID-19. This convergence of events very clearly marked the beginning of the pandemic for me. On April 11, 2020, after 29 days in the ICU, my father died of complications from COVID-19. The piece 29 Held Breaths represents each of those 29 days as a breath-filled balloon printed with an image that visualizes the act of physically holding a breath. The horrors of our times; of the pandemic, of racism and police brutality, and of the wildfires that happen with increasing frequency and intensity in the Western United States, all connect to the figurative, and sometimes very literal, act of breathing. Between March 13, 2020 and the first day of this exhibition, a total of 705 days have passed; almost two years. During that time, we have all felt the weight of grief in some way, the heaviness of existence in these ever-changing times. But if you are reading this, you, like me, have continued to breathe in and out, to move from one day to the next.

Through this project, Heavier than Air, I invite you to consider with me that weight of grief, of the losses that we have sustained collectively and individually over these last 705 days, to take a moment to feel that grief and to feel the relief of sharing it, of externalizing it as a “held breath” and knowing that others are sharing that weight by doing the same.

Follow the hallucination of a group of civilians as the amoeba eats their brain cells. The one hallucination they all have in common is that they see Mimes, but as death comes so does the reality that everything was a hallucination except for the Mimes.

The Mimes were real.
