Kiskisan kung Kiskisan Art Exhibit and Schedule of Events

“Kiskisan kung Kiskisan” translates to an intense confrontation characterized with friction or a clash between two opposing forces.  It is a style of confrontation that brings each foe elbow-to-elbow and cheek-to-cheek.  It is a peoples’ weapon of resistance and their fearless determination to struggle for true liberation and democracy.

Habi Arts and spaceLUNA are co-sponsoring the first solo exhibit of Franz DG followed by a series of events that serve to inspire, teach skills, create awareness, build community, and put into action what it means when people say “kiskisan.”

All events located at:

2404 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 1B
Los Angeles, CA 90057
