Calavera Elotera in Illuminations: Dia De Los Muertos 2011 at SOMArts Gallery

Your favorite fame whore Elotita aka The Fat Free Elotera is back…  and this time she has taken it to a new level…  she has faked her own death… and has returned as CALAVERA ELOTERA.

Calavera Elotera in Illuminations: Día de los Muertos 2011
Curated by Rene and Rio Yañez
SOMArts Bay Gallery, 934 Brannan St. (between 8th & 9th)
San Francisco, CA 94103
Tues–Fri, 12–7PM, Sat 11–5PM, Sun 11–3PM.

Opening Reception
Friday, October 7, 2011, 6–9PM
Opening will feature music, interactive performance and the unveiling of over 30 altars and installations. The evening includes a special performance by Herbert Siguenza, of Culture Clash fame. Siguenza will perform and live paint as renowned artist, Pablo Picasso.

The exhibition continues to examine the ways technology shapes the celebration of Day of the Dead. Once again, a Flickr group enables the exhibition’s curators to accept digital photos as offerings to those who people want to honor. The public can upload their digital contributions here. Selected images will be printed and displayed as part of the exhibit.

Jewcy Art: Maya Escobar
by Margarita Korol, February 24, 2011

In 2007 we dubbed her the Anti-Feminist Feminist Jewish Latina. We stumbled upon performance artist/ Internet curator/ editor Maya Escobar again at the GA in New Orleans where her video installations were making a Marina Abramovich-style scene near Jewcy’s booth. She uses the web as a platform for engaging in critical community dialogues that concern processes by which identities are socially and culturally constructed. She performs multiple identities, sampling widely from online representations of existing cultural discourses.

Clearly, The Fat Free Elotera has played a major role in last few corn related posts. And, just when you thought she was gone… she’s back. And she’s doing what she does best… dancing with the crew.








Finding Frida on Are You My Other?

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.

Elotes

¿Sabes una cosa?  ¡A los Chicagüenses les encanta comer elotes! En el verano, puedes encontrar elotes en muchos vecindarios, especialmente en los parques.

Aquí hay una colección de vídeos donde el tema principal son los elotes.  Si tú tienes un vídeo de elotes, por favor compártelo aquí.

Y pronto tendremos recetas saludables e interesantes de elotes en Are You My Other?

AM I her or is she ME: The Chronicles of The Fat Free Elotera

The Fat Free Elotera is a (developing) character on Are You My Other? The Battle Between The Self and The Other, an ongoing self-portrait dialog exchange project, produced by myself (ME) and Philadelphia-based performance and installation artist Andria Morales (AM).  Through a series of weekly exchanged blog posts,  Andria and I publicly negate, deconstruct, and reconstruct our individual histories, identities, and conceptions of self.
