Mesera as part of the group exhibition The Looking Glass: Artist Immigrants to Washington, Alper Innitiative Space, American University Museum
June 18-August 14, 2016.
Opening Reception: June 18, 6-9pm
Mesera is a continuation of my interest in issues of migration and stereotyped roles often attributed to immigrants of Hispanic origin. A stereotypical South American character with mouth taped shut and a tray strapped to my right hand, I will travel through the Alper gallery space at American University during the opening reception of the exhibit, a video companion to the piece will run constantly after conclusion of the live-performance.
