MEJANTE LOCAS | MFA Thesis Art Exhibition

April 16 @ 1:00 pm - April 20 @ 5:00 pm

MEJANTE LOCAS [semejante locas]

by Daniel Ramirez-Lamos

Exhibition: April 16 – 20, 2024

Reception: Friday, April 19th, 6-8p

I’m making a conscious effort to disregard what should be expected of me. Saving face at the expense of myself and in fear of what others may see or say. My exhibition is a declaration of my own narrative and my expression of acceptance as queer and quirky effeminate boy. Through the language of painting, music, crochet, and costuming, I am taking control of my own story and alleviating the hard-to-talk-about topics of being an individual with multifaceted identities in a world that is not all that accepting. Through color, play, love, and clowning, I can show what I’m really feeling without the use of difficult-to-source wording and academic jargon.

I honor myself and my culture by being unapologetically authentic. I hope that authenticity resonates with others who unapologetically stand by their truth and power. My show is for those who may be outcast, othered, or weird; for people who seek visibility and love. For those that get it and for those that don’t, I hope the message will resonate with all.

What a lovely idea it is to be a person.

To dance among others and to participate in the choir.

Not to stand in the shadows and wait their turn.
