Guillermo Gómez-Peña: The Most (un) Documented Mexican Artist

April 9, 7:00 PM

Free

In his latest solo work, Guillermo Gómez-Peña draws from his 30-year-old living archive and combines new and classic performance material to present a unique perspective on the immediate future of the Americas. Combining spoken-word poetry, activist theory, radical storytelling, and language experimentation, Gómez-Peña offers critical and humorous commentary about the art world, academia, new technologies, the culture of war and violence in the U.S., organized crime in Mexico, gender and race politics, and the latest wave of complications surrounding gentrification in the “creative city.”

Cosponsored by the Department of Theater and Dance, Latin American Studies, the Department of Spanish, and the Center for the Arts and Humanities.

Free tickets are available online in advance or at the door.
