Alondra & Andrea, las nonas, las flacas, no matter what they would call us, my sister and I would come as a pair. While our mom would dress us in the same diva clothes, we were yet so different. We both chose non-basicas paths. I chose the art career, and she had two bebes while working and going to school!.
In this exhibition where I am presenting a different concept and an aesthetic never shown before, I honor our 90s childhoods, our 2000s teenage years, and my deep admiration for my sister with photos of her pregnancy and motherhood. The show will question societies’ views on Latinas’ womanhood, sexuality and reproductive rights. All while being extra with glitz, glam, and rhinestones! Cause we will be brats sistas por siempre, 4 ever & ever.
