A tanking economy might have forced Damion Hayes to close his Belltown gallery, BLVD, but it can't keep him down. He and fellow curator Jose Tapia, with artist Julio Guerrero, formed Desmadre Arte, a collective devoted to uniting emerging Latino artists from all over the country. Their aesthetic? "The strong revolutionary traditions of [Mexican engraver José Guadalupe] Posada with DIY ideals and a good dose of Taco Truck aesthetics." Their first show, featuring video animation, sculpture, drawing, photography, and painting by 19 artists, is a major production. The opening party, on May 14 from 6–10 pm, will feature corridos, carnitas, and more. (Vermillion, 1508 11th Ave, 709-9797. 4 pm–midnight, free.)
