Naomi Rincón Gallardo: The Formaldehyde Trip

Part of Naomi Rincón Gallardo: The Formaldehyde Trip

View work-in-progress previews for Naomi Rincón Gallardo’s The Formaldehyde Trip, a new performance and video work that weaves together Mesoamerican cosmologies, feminist activism and theory, and indigenous women’s struggles for their territories. Debuting in March 2017, The Formaldehyde Trip imagines the murdered Mixtec activist Alberta “Bety” Cariño in her journey through the underworld where she encounters warriors, witches, and the dual-gendered goddess of death.

Naomi Rincón Gallardo’s The Formaldehyde Trip is part of Performance in Progress.
