This Thursday, contemporary Latinx artists Arantxa Araujo, Francheska, Alcántara, ray ferreira, and Jennif(f)er Tamayo are performing at the Brooklyn Museum in Cuerpxs Radicales: Radical Bodies in Performance. This is the second in a series of three can’t-miss performances responding to themes in the museum’s exhibition, Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985.

According to the Brooklyn Museum, the performers, all female-identifying or gender-nonconforming Latinx artists, are “exploding rigid notions of femininity.” The event will include performance, visual art, literature, music, and more, “engaging with our current political and cultural landscape.”

The first artist performs at 6:00 pm, while the last performs at 8:30 pm, so make sure to get there early to catch the whole event.

When: Thursday, July 12 at 6:00 pm
Where: The Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway, Prospect Park, Brooklyn)

  1. Pues, ¿Cómo se pronuncia esta nueva palabra ‘latinx’? Me parece muy extraña, especialmente con respecto al systema fonético de español. En verdad, me parece ser una barbaridad norteamericana, pero estoy dispuesto a aprender.
