Please join us as we unfold this innovative performative book into a gallery installation. The outcome of a seven-year collaboration, DOC/UNDOC, Documentado/Undocumented Ars Shamánica Performática, features Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s performance texts and Felicia Rice’s relief prints and typography, accompanied by Jennifer González’s critical commentary. The deluxe edition is housed in a hi-tech aluminum case containing a video by Gustavo Vazquez, an altar, and a cabinet of curiosities. Opening the case triggers light and Zachary Watkins’ interactive sound art.

“The book invites us to consider an ongoing tension as we navigate a world of politics and appearance, racism and immigration, self and other.”
— Jennifer A. González
