La clase de dibujo libre (2000-2004/2017/2018)
January 17, 2018
Performance
Duration: 2 hours
"Below the Underground: Renegade Art and Action in 1990s Mexico," curated by Irene Tsatsos with Daniela Lieja Quintanar, part of "Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA" Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, CA
Playlist: Ganas (Mas Exitos)
Nails: Jeffrey Chavez

From 2000-2004, Ema Villanueva and Eduardo Flores held figure drawing classes with nude models in public spaces throught Mexico City. The participants were often members of a certain labor union or of marginalized communities. As Villanueva posed, her male partner led the class while discussing local politics. Villanueva stated that through this series, she hoped to normalize female sexuality in Mexico while politically engaging with specific groups of people. These classes also allowed for a moment of calm and artistic production for those who might not otherwise have access to it. I reperformed Clase twice at the Armory Center for the Arts. Rather than do so exactly, exactly, especially because the social, political, and physical contexts were wildly different, I made it unabashedly Chicanx while disrupting the hierarchical relationship between student and teacher. DJ Ganas created a playlist of old school Chicanx music that played throughout the performance. Using jewelry, make up, and hair, I marked my body as Chicanx while embodying poses based on Chicanx and Mexican iconography. Rather than actively speak about politics, I asked members of the audience to join me onstage in the construction of tableauxs. Our bodies shook in an effort to embody cultural memories that could never be perfectly held together.
