    Truly, I am honored to have been invited to participate in this incredible curation. Words cannot express how moving it is for me, showing work alongside my dearest colleagues, and my personal San Antonio art heroes, including César Martínez and Chuck Ramirez.

  • LUJURIA

    LUJURIA has been one of the funnest project's I've worked on yet! Appropriating the language of 80s action cinema and arcade shoot 'em ups, LUJURIA centers on articulating the pressures of "coming out." Appropriating the language of 80s action cinema, LUJURIA celebrates LGBT endurance, expressing a lust for life, freedom, and respect. 

    Documentation of the work will be posted very soon!

  • Forthcoming Exhibition — Te Voy A Conquistar, 2/18/17

    Te Voy A Conquistar is a performance based artwork which employs elements of installation to set the stage. Expressing the anxieties endured by Queer members of la gente, Te Voy A Conquistar communicates a need for the expansion of the narrative of Latino identity within the US and beyond. Centering on the pressures of “coming out,” Te Voy A Conquistar is a crescendo of melancholic introspection and boisterous expression. Despite speaking from the perspective of a Gay Chicano, Te Voy A Conquistar invites audience members to consider (or reconsider) their own identities and relationships with gender, and the LGBTX spectrum.

    To closeted LGBTX audience members, Te Voy A Conquistar is not a rallying cry to fling open the closet door, to romp around some parade. Te Voy A Conquistar is a nod in your direction, an acknowledgement that you are not alone—that the pain you feel is valid and shared.


    Performance times for Te Voy A Conquistar are shown below, and may be seen both Saturday and Sunday. Audience members are invited to experience the set as installation, prior to the start of each act.

    Saturday, February 18th.

    1:00 PM—2:00 PM

    3:00 PM—4:00 PM

    5:00—6:00 PM

    Sunday, February 19th.

    12:00 PM—1:00 PM

    2:00 PM—3:00 PM
