Join us for a presentation of work by artist Xandra Ibarra and a dialogue between Ibarra and Professor Juana María Rodríguez about the nexus of art, performance and scholarship. Xandra Ibarra is an Oakland-based performance artist that uses hyperbolized modes of racialization and sexualization to test the boundaries between her own body and coloniality, compulsory whiteness, and Mexicanidad. Her practice integrates performance, sex acts, and burlesque with video, photography, and objects. Juana María Rodríguez is Professor of Ethnic Studies and Core faculty in Performance Studies at UC Berkeley. Professor Rodríguez is the author of two books, Queer Latinidad: Identity Practices, Discursive Spaces (NYU Press, 2003) and Sexual Futures, Queer Gestures, and Other Latina Longings (NYU Press 2014).

Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Sexual Culture, the department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies, and the Department of Art Practice.
