The Border Corps will present Mexus Sexus Fluxus: a performance art psycho-drama in psyx psycles, this Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 8:30 pm, at James S. Copley Auditorium, San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.
Mexus Sexus Fluxus will be performed in response to this year’s San Diego Museum of Art Summer Salon Series theme–What does a city need? Mexus Sexus Fluxus began with The Border Corps’ exploration into the archives of the the Fluxus Show (1969) and Arte Picante (1976) at University Art Gallery at UCSD and continues to evolve incorporating the night’s idea of Economy and Social Consumerism focusing on its effects on our humanity. The performance includes music, poetry, and psycho drama on topics such as the economy, world population, the CIA, and the Femicides of Ciudad Juarez.
Comprised of Shondra Dawson, Armando de la Torre, Anthony Bernal Vasquez, Perry Vasquez and endy, The Border Corps is a performance art collective that deals with social justice, border, and ecological issues (among other topics). Based in Southern California, they have performed at Agitprop Space, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, San Diego Museum of Art, University Gallery at UCSD, the streets of Barrio Logan and Self Help Graphics & Art in Los Angeles.
