Over the course of the Infinite Rehearsal exhibition, each of the featured artists will participate in a public program in which they share a draft of a work in process. Join us tonight for a special preview of a work in process by Jordan Slaffey and Jobel Medina, followed by a discussion with the artists about the work.
Jordan Slaffey is an Orange County/Los Angeles native who has been dancing since she was five years old. As a young adult, Slaffey discovered a deep interest in modern dance, and shortly fell in love with hip-hop and other urban styles like house dance. Through the pairing of her classical and hip-hop training, she discovered her specialty in improvisational movement. In her avant-garde work, Slaffey combines experimental hip-hop movement with layers of contemporary and modern dance.
Born in 1990 in Pasig, Philippines, Jobel Medina is a Los Angeles-based interdisciplinary artist celebrated for his innate preference for humor and contradictions. Seamlessly blending spectacle with experimentation, and virtuosity with amateurism, his work serves as a captivating exploration of the unexpected. Jobel gained recognition for his solo series, Kill The Monsters, performed at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in 2022, the premiere of his queer romance theatrical-dance, David, My Goliath, at REDCAT in 2021, and his latest collaborative project, It’s Just a Dance, Baby, presented by Congress, which involved established artists from both commercial and fine arts domains. His dedication to his craft culminated in a Masters in Fine Arts degree from the California Institute of The Arts. Jobel’s enthusiasm for imparting knowledge led him to teaching roles at respected institutions including CSULB, CSULA, CSUF, CalArts, and OSCA. Currently, he’s a creative artist and dancer collaborating on Dimitri Chamblas’s upcoming work, Take Me Home, set to tour the U.S. and Europe in 2023/24.
