You saw Escobar-Morales as promo models in TX, “promoting” Arizona Tourism…

And here we are as marketing executives in NJ.

Andria was live at Gallery Aferro and I skyped in from Chicago.

Stay tuned for more details on the performance and the results from AMerican MEdia Output‘s #targetaudiencesurvey.

an example of my Internet Art

Last week I had the on honor of being interviewed by my papi on Sí Se Puede. We talked about Internet art, the implications of growing up online, linguistic performances on twitter, public vs private, and more.

AM and I are applying to another residency!

Unlike our current Wonder Woman Residency, where we applied as Escobar-Morales, this particular program does not accept joint proposals. So we are submitting seperately and hoping (and hoping and hoping) we will both be accepted.

I am applying to the #InternetArt section.

And she is applying to the Photo section.

Mayra Ramirez

Mayra Ramirez makes my heart pitter patter….
(here is a repost of one of her latest posts on her blog Hella Breezys)

It’s hard for me to fully express my disappointment and frustration with Arizona’s law makers… last week they passed HB 2281 witch bans “Ethnic Studies” in the states K-12 grade classrooms. I cannot emphasize how important it is to be able to learn about the history of our peoples, of our ancestors, and to be able to find pride and empowerment in that. It’s such a sad and scary time in both Arizona and the country. Here is a great article about HB 2281 that I found very interesting…

So now I want to share my favorite Save by the Bell episode where Slater finds his Chicano Power!!! I feel it’s a great example of why having Ethnic Studies in our classrooms is so crucial…

FUCK ARIZONA’S ETHNOCENTRIC LAWS… WE NEED TO FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO LEARN OUR HISTORY, OUR CULTURE AND THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF OUR RAZA… TIERRA, JUSTICIA, Y LIBERTAD!!!

RIGHT ON MAYRA!!!

And be sure to check out her collaboration with the always amazing Rio Yañez

Finding Frida on Are You My Other?

December 6, 2010 § 1 Comment

Earlier this week AM and I decided to add a search function to Are You My Other?

We quickly discovered the unthinkable…

Our fame-seeking Fat Free Elotera is NOT #1 search on our blog. Instead, this slot belongs to the one and only Frida Kahlo.

Are You My Other? tag cloud

Hmm… I wonder how our little Elotera will respond.

Are You My Other as the Two Fridas
Las Dos Locas

deal with it.

I am Midwestern girl, born and bred.
#Midwestern Maya
Yes, I know there is a New York Art World.
And yes, I am aware that people make cultural identity work on the West Coast.
But I am rooted here.
With the world at my fingertips.

Where Am I?
