The Formaldehyde Trip is part of Galería’s series, Queerly Mexican – an exploration of visual dialog across borders and generations about the ongoing struggle to be simultaneously Mexican or Chicanx and queer. Queerly Mexican will feature a series of artist residencies that will culminate in an exhibition in the Spring of 2017 that seeks to transform cultural politics of national/ethnic identity that rest discursively on patriarchal constructs of heterosexism and machismo, narrowly defined womanhood, and rigid binaries of gender and sexuality.
