From 2002 to 2012, performance artist Xandra Ibarra’s persona, La Chica Boom, embodied the experience of racial and sexual abjection. Through combined parody and spectacle, Ibarra presented various works entitled spictacles—performances that engaged hyper-raciality and sexuality in order to explore racialized sexuality and queer forms of pleasure. In this lecture, Ibarra will delve into some of the ideological frameworks she draws upon to create and depart from what she calls “spictacles”.
