A LARGE, UNRULY GAME OF HOPSCOTCH

Inspired by Gamboa's writings and the iconic surrealist novel Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar, a whimsically expanded take on the schoolyard pastime is mapped out on the Getty Museum Courtyard.

CIVILLIANS,
A FOTONOVELA

"Civillains is part of a fotonovela series called Aztlangst. The series title combines the sense of a mythical place of origin (Aztlan) with the dread and self-awareness experienced by the dispossessed in the present moment (angst). As in Gamboa’s other fotonovelas, the performers’ expository statements function as a Greek chorus for an implied dramatic narrative taking place somewhere else (homeland) among other unnamed social actors (civilians)."
-CHON A. NORIEGA
