Tamales Aturquesados

Tamales Aturquesados is part of Aturquesada, a performance-based project in which I sell and/or barter various objects in turquoise in public spaces where informal economic activities are present. While “performing” this art intervention, I engage the public in conversation to negotiate the value of the tamales aturquesados.
