Florezca Board of Directors

In conjunction with Margarita Cabrera: Pulso y Martillo

Sweeney Art Gallery


Saturday, March 5, 2011, 3pm - 4pm

Cabrera will direct a third performance/installation called Florezca Board of Directors: Performance (Mesa directiva: performance). It will be the first meeting of Florezca's board of directors, consisting of Cabrera, AB 540 students, and other participants. The performance will be a mix of rehearsed statements and improvisation in collaboration with UCR creative writing professor, Juan Felipe Herrera, author of 187 Reasons Mexicanos Can\'t Cross The Border, and UCR MFA candidate in creative writing, Scott Hernandez. Cabrera will work with UCR students, including undocumented ones, and activists, to determine the design of the boardroom table.

This performance is a part of Undocumented: A Day of Discussion, which focuses on the status of undocumented students and workers in the U.S. Following the performance at 4:30 PM, there will be a panel discussion on undocumented students and workers in the U.S. Panelists include professors, activists, students, and artists. At 7:00 PM, there will be a double-feature The Invisibles (Los Invisibles) and Maquilapolis: City of Factories in the Culver Center Screening Room.
