Arca releases a music video for ‘Ritual’

Arca releases a music video for ‘Ritual’, a bonus track featured on the Kick compilation, directed by Albert Moya, who previously directed Arca’s ‘Cayó’ video. “This video is for the freaks, for the outcasts, for the dispossessed, for the weirdos, for the migrants, for the shunned, the mocked, the ridiculed, the misunderstood, the othered.” – Arca

A quantum, ever-innovating artist, Arca’s liquid nature sees her continue to thrive in unexpected places. Last fall she DJ’d at Beyoncé’s Renaissance Paris party. In January she turned heads (and snatched a purse) while walking Mugler’s Fall Winter 2022/23 Paris show. Her music, along with lyrics from Ufo361, soundtracked Anne Imhof’s YOUTH exhibition debut at Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. Proenza Schouler’s Fall Winter 2023 runway show featured an original musician composition by Arca titled “Séance,” with words by Chloë Sevigny. She headlined the reopening of the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles and recently announced the initial details of her upcoming fall Park Avenue Armory show Mutant;Destrudo which will take place in October 2023.

The KICK series has initiated a new phase in Arca’s career, elevating her from an icon of the experimental fringe into a full-blown cultural phenomenon and a vanguard in Latin American music. Since the release of her widely-acclaimed KICK series, Arca’s been nominated for two Latin GRAMMY’s and one GRAMMY. She’s appeared and composed for labels including Loewe, Acne Studios, Dior, Proenza Schouler, Reebok, Byredo, Ray-ban, Bottega Veneta and Mugler. She remixed tracks for Lady Gaga, Beverly Glenn-Copeland and Laurie Anderson. She announced MUTANT, a digital webstore that represents the product division of Arca and launched a new app with Chroma Studios called Lux Aeterna, which lets fans enter a digital audiovisual world to explore her art and partnered with CIRCA to launch Untitled, showcasing her paintings across a global network of screens in Los Angeles, Milan, Melbourne, New York, Seoul, Tokyo and London.
