About the Event

The Mextasy Circus of Desmadres:

Naranja County Edition

February 3-March 2, 2024

Curated by William "Memo" Nericcio and Guillermo Nericcio Garcia, the traveling exhibition emerged from the pages of Nericcio's acclaimed 2007 book, Text]-Mex:

Seductive Hallucinations of the Mexican in America.

Beyond showcasing racist artifacts on both sides of the border, Mextasy introduces the concept of "xicanosmotic" art and serves as more than a mere representation of ecstasy for Mexico.The multi-media archival exhibition boldly confronts and redefines stereotypes of Mexicans pervasive in American mass culture through a dynamic representation of Chicano identity and resilience.

Nericcio's transition from a writer to a Chicano artist further enriches the narrative—he draws on his childhood passion for drawing and challenges the dehumanizing portrayals of Mexicans in American visual culture.
