The UTEP Department of Communications and the Chicano Studies program presents a lecture and exhibit by Dr. William Anthony Nericcio that examines American visual culture reflecting images and stereotypes of Latinas/os. “Mextasy: Seductive Hallucinations of Latina/o Mannequins Prowling the American Unconscious” opens at  5:30 pm, Wednesday, Oct. 15 in Quinn Hall, Room 212 at the University of Texas at El Paso.
 
Mextasy is a traveling art show/exhibit based on the work of William “Memo” Nericcio and Guillermo Nericcio García. Mextasy both reflects and expands upon Nericcio’s 2007 book with UT Press, “Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the Mexican in America.” In addition to racist artifacts from American mass culture (the bread and butter of Uncle Sam’s unconscious), the show also features works that “xicanosmotic,” that is, works by Mexican-American artists where the delicious tattoo of the Mexican/US frontera is writ large as in the deliriously delicious semiotic tracings of Raul Gonzalez IIIPerry VasquezIzel Vargas, and Marisela Norte.
 
Nericcio’s talk includes readings from his new book “Eyegiene: Permutations of Subjectivity in the Televisual Age of Sex and Race.”
Dr. William Anthony Nericcio is professor of Chicano Studies and Latin American Studies, English and comparative literature at San Diego State University. He is director of the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences and director of the San Diego State University Press.
