“Beyond The Rainbow: More Than Single Issue Lives", Queer & Trans Artists of Color Keynote Panel

Join us for a panel of Queer & Trans Artist of Color. Featuring Angélica Becerra , Amir Rabiyah and Mar Pascual


Angélica Becerra is a visual artist, fourth year PhD student and inaugural cohort member in the Cesar E. Chavez department of Chicana and Chicano Studies at UCLA. Born and raised in Jalisco, Mexico until the age of ten, and thereafter as an immigrant in the city of Los Angeles, this bicultural upbringing has deeply influenced her interests in Chicana/o cultural studies and the influence of geography on art-making, as well as the relationship between the U.S./Mexico border and the ways in which Chicana/o cultural workers choose to engage social justice. Angélica’s interests lie in the formation of Chicana/o identity through international art practice. Her artistic work (found at angelicabecerra.bigcartel.com) focuses on the intersections of feminism, Chicana art and reclaiming iconography for the aim of social justice and movement building.
