Additional Information

In this provocative performance-lecture, beloved Mexican artist Astrid Hadad explores the relationship between her work and Mexican culture and politics.

Known for over-the-top costumes and fusing Mexican and Latin music into a genre she calls "Heavy Nopal," Hadad skewers Mexican hypocrisy, machismo, and corruption from a cheeky feminist perspective.

For this program, Hadad recontextualizes popular Mexican symbols such as the virgin, the flag, the cactus, the heart, the mother, and the border.
