Polina Porras Sivolobova: The Working Virgin

The Working Virgin

Join us to witness the advent of a new model woman. Be part of this durational performance where the one and only Virgin of Guadalupe will embody the working woman and read from her most recent manifestos. She marches, poses, and plays with objects. Look for her on the street, dressed as usual.
