Naomi Rincón Gallardo

Artist-researcher Naomi Rincón Gallardo creates counternarratives of dissent, utopia, and desire that are meant to throw off the yoke of alienation. Powerfully incantatory, her videos combine multiple forms of narrative and performance, including music videos, vernacular festivities, theatre, dance, speculative fiction, audio-visual archives, singing, poetry, and spoken word. Based in Oaxaca, Rincón Gallardo’s process relies on a feminist re-reading of ancestral Mesoamerican mythology, combined with modern-day stories of the struggle to preserve land and biodiversity.
