2525 Distribution St Charlotte, NC 28203

Charlotte artist Julio Gonzalez will present the multimedia experience "Día de Los Casi Muertos," or "Day of the Almost Dead," Oct. 15-22 at C3Lab (2525 Distribution St., Charlotte). The exhibition pays homage to the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, or "Day of the Dead," a time when family and friends gather to remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family members who have passed away. "Día de Los Casi Muertos" explores observations with death and aging through a video and photography installation. "Although, I have seen pieces of the Día de los Muerto tradition make their way into events like Halloween, with face paint, costumes, and animated movies, I have not seen the core element of coming to terms with death make the same cultural leap," Gonzalez said. "This observation inspired me to create the 'Dia de Los Casi Muertos' project." The multimedia experience features photographs of six Charlotte-area residents ages 40 and older modeling "Day of the Dead"-sty
