Inspired by an ongoing exhibition of works by the groundbreaking veteran artist-muralist Judithe Hernández, the Museum of Latin American Art's Barrio Baroque is a freewheeling, far-ranging event aimed at celebrating Chicana feminism, women of color and their wildly varied creative outputs. With a set from the brilliant '77 punk rock spearhead Alice Bag, a creative powerhouse whose 21st-century re-emergence as both an author (with her stunning memoir Violence Girl) and a vocalist capable of electrifying performances and arresting statements on gender, inequity and social injustice; plus rad post-punk "artivists" ELLA, a dazzling array of multimedia installations, film, discussions, popups, more art, female craft vendors, food, booze and a photo booth, this is certain to be as thought-provoking as it is rewarding.
