Katia Tirado is a Mexico City-based artist, actress and activist whose artistic practice destabilizes gender constructions and the borders between public and private spheres, using ritualized profantiy and abjection. Her solo work Razor Weaving is a complex system of gestures, video montages, and poetic actions woven in a continuous process. The piece weaves together and intertwines the living memory and struggle of the women in the Zapatista movement–the voices and testimonies of insurgent women. From there, it uncovers the plot that braids together the reasons and contentions behind the great uprising: the women who are at the root and sustenance of the resistance, the unique strength of the rebellion. Tejido a navaja reconstructs and records the magnitude of the struggles faced by insurgent native women.
This event is free and unticketed. Open to Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff only (please bring your Dartmouth ID for admission). Space is limited, seating will be on a first come first served basis - come early!
