ROBERTO OPALIO & MY CAT IS AN ALIEN
will participate to the forthcoming SONIC YOUTH etc.: SENSATIONAL FIX
museum exhibition, that focuses on the multidisciplinary activities of the groundbreaking experimental guitar band Sonic Youth
since its formation in 1981. It features the band's collaborations with visual artists, filmmakers, designers and musicians, as well as a choice of other works selected by the band. Through the multidisciplinary output of Sonic Youth and related works by other artists in the exhibition, an alternative history of contemporary culture is being uncovered in which the division between 'high art' and 'low art' is being called into question, while issues are explored such as teenage rebellion, adolescent wanderlust, gender, fame, fashion, sexuality, and religion.

, and his film 'Alien Blood
'with soundtrack appositely created by MY CAT IS AN ALIEN
