Isis Rodriguez
c. 1996
My Life as a Comic Stripper
7/1/1997 - 8/9/1997
Curated by Yolanda Lopez, this exhibit presented work by SF artist Isis Rodríguez who combines la Vírgen de Guadalupe, comic strip characters, and sex workers in intriguing and humorous ways. Rodríguez's work rips apart feminine ideals —such as the Mexican virgin/whore paradigm— and peels away several layers of assumptions and hypocrisy which have accumulated around gender roles.
