In Abject Performances Leticia Alvarado attracts out the irreverent, disruptive aesthetic ideas utilized by Latino artists and cultural manufacturers who shun criteria of respectability which are commonly used to conjure concrete minority identities. as opposed to works imbued with satisfaction, redemption, or party, artists comparable to Ana Mendieta, Nao Bustamante, and the Chicano paintings collective referred to as Asco hire destructive affects—shame, disgust, and unbelonging—to seize stories that lie on the fringe of the mainstream, inspirational Latino-centered social justice struggles. Drawing from a various expressive archive that levels from functionality paintings to performative tales of non-public faith-based subjection, Alvarado illuminates modes of neighborhood formation and social critique outlined through a refusal of identitarian coherence that still coalesce into Latino association and possibility.
