Scenes from Justin Favela’s Piñata-Powered Chop Shop

Chop Shop by Justin Favela (through July 3 at Alios) is an exhibition that showcases the artist’s new works, which will be made out of deconstructed car sculptures he previously made for Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Clark County Government Center. In an effort to make his art both accessible and thought provoking, Favela highlights the ephemeral nature of his work while allowing others to participate in the performative aspect of the show and help him deconstruct and create new pieces, all of which are influenced by Mexican-American popular culture.
