Lia Garcia: Subtle Strangeness

Subtle Strangeness

This performative ritual takes place in a fountain-reflecting pool outside of the MUAC in the Centro Cultural Universitario. In an emotional encounter of affective remembering, the artist will use her voice and skin around water to move closer to the people around her.


Lia Garcia (La Novia Sirena) was born in Mexico City, where she currently lives. She is a feminist apprentice, pedagogue, and performance artist. Her artistic projects have focused on weaving affective bridges between her own trans* experience and Mexico’s social context. She has performed by occupying public space in multiple routes and wanderings.
