Naomi Rincón Gallardo: The Formaldehyde Trip

Phyllis Wattis Theater, SFMOMA

Thursday, March 16, 2017 - Friday, March 17, 2017 | 8:00 pm

Performance in Progress presents the debut of The Formaldehyde Trip, a live concert and video work by Mexico City-based artist Naomi Rincón Gallardo. 

The Formaldehyde Trip weaves together Mesoamerican cosmologies, feminist activism and theory, and indigenous women’s struggles for their territories. This new commission 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. Rincón Gallardo’s The Formaldehyde Trip is co-curated with Galería de la Raza.
