In ""ŌME,"" artists Daniela Riojas and Zachary Fabri examine a dual Mestizaje and Afro-Latinx experience in a 5-part performance that expresses historical encounters between Indigenous and African peoples, focusing on pre-Colombian evidence of their connection through water travel and the subsequent brown/black impacts during Iberian colonialism. ""ŌME"" will utilize the unique acoustic design and take place in SITE Gallery Houston in April 2019 as a part of the Houston chapter of Latino Art Now!, a national conference designed to explore the rich-ness and depth of Latinx art. Part of Latino Art Now! and the Spring of Latino Art.
