Pop-Up performances in the exhibition, featuring DavEnd and Xandra Ibarra at 7 and 7:45 pm.
DavEnd is a tender-hearted, accordion-wielding songwriter, performing artist, and costume designer based in San Francisco. Ms. End has released two studio albums, and for the past eight years, has been touring extensively in the US, performing at queer teen centers, festivals, colleges, theatres, and backyards. Most recently, DavEnd produced and starred in two sold out runs of her original musical, “Fabulous Artistic Guys Get Overtly Traumatized Sometimes: The Musical!”, and is currently working on a new show based entirely around large sculptural costumes.
Xandra Ibarra is an Oakland-based performance and video artist from the El Paso/Juarez border who performs and works under the alias, La Chica Boom. La Chica Boom is a performance art project that uses hyper-raciality/sexuality/gender as an experience based mode of inquiry into her relationship with coloniality, compulsory whiteness, and Mexicanidad. She uses video, objects, photography, and sex acts to evoke comedic and melancholic racial and sexual expectation. Her aim is to amplify gendered and racialized iconography and make problematic constructions via spectacle more transparent to the spectator-what she calls spictacles—spectacles of degeneracy and power that are both against and engaged in the colonial gaze.
Special exhibition tickets to Keith Haring: The Political Line are required to attend this performance.
