Cuban-American artist Coco Fusco explores gender, identity, and race through performances, videos, and installation. We’ll look to Fusco’s performances to create our own alter egos. Using paper plates, paint, and string, create masks to discuss who we are and where we come from!

Club CMA Para Familias is an opportunity for families to create artwork inspired by Latinx and Spanish-speaking visual artists. This class is presented predominantly in Spanish while providing translation to English as needed.

Materials:

Coco Fusco una artista cubanoamericana explora género, identidad y raza en sus arte en vivo, películas e instalaciones. Al observar algunas de sus actuaciones, crearemos nuestro propio alter ego para que podamos explorar temas que a veces pueden ser un desafío para nosotros. Con platos de papel, pintura y cordel haremos máscaras para hablar de quiénes somos y de dónde venimos.
