In Abject Performances Leticia Alvarado attracts out the irreverent, disruptive aesthetic innovations utilized by Latino artists and cultural manufacturers who shun criteria of respectability which are more often than not used to conjure concrete minority identities. instead of works imbued with delight, redemption, or party, artists corresponding to Ana Mendieta, Nao Bustamante, and the Chicano artwork collective often called Asco hire adverse affects—shame, disgust, and unbelonging—to catch reviews that lie on the fringe of the mainstream, inspirational Latino-centered social justice struggles. Drawing from a various expressive archive that levels from functionality artwork to performative tales of private faith-based subjection, Alvarado illuminates modes of neighborhood formation and social critique outlined through a refusal of identitarian coherence that still coalesce into Latino association and possibility.
