Julia Barbosa Landois (MFA '07) will perform Culo de Oro/The Golden Ass on April 26th at the Fusebox Festival in Austin, TX. The Golden Ass is a multimedia performance that examines sex, masculinity, and the tourist mentality along the Texas/Mexico border. Landois and musician Erik Sanden will perform dialogue taken from interviews with friends and brothel patrons, sex tourism website testimonials, regional folklore, and ideas about sex and spirituality from ancient Mexico. These texts are then woven with strangely apropos pop songs and a grand finale video animation.
Fusebox is an annual contemporary art and performance festival that takes place in Austin, TX for two weeks each April. This year, Landois will be featured among artists such as Joan Jonas, James Luna, Tamy Ben-Tor, and The Coathangers.
