Caz Azevedo in Biomythography
MFA Candidate Caz Azevedo (MFA 2020) is participating in the upcoming group show “Biomythography: Making Visible.” Curated by alum Jessica Wimbley (MFA 2005) and Chris Christion, “Biomythography” will be on display from February 10- March 13, 2020 at the Cerritos College Art Gallery.
“Biomythography: Making Visible” is the eighth exhibition in a series that seeks to investigate biomythography as a visual arts practice. Biomythograpy is a literary device created by Audre Lord to expand limited demarcations of identity. UC Santa Cruz Dance Professor Ted Warburton defines Biomythography as; “the weaving together of myth, history, and biography in epic narrative form, a style of composition that represents all the ways in which we perceive the world.”
The artists have consciously or unconsciously invoked the literary form of biomythography by engaging in unpacking the complexities of our gender, political, and historical identities. Asserting that identity is the culmination of these inseparable yet distinct relationships and provoking the viewer to reevaluate the lenses through which they’ve viewed individuals in order to recognize themselves.
An opening reception will take place on Monday, February 10, 2020, from 6- pm. Thinh Nguyen will perform “Deadnaming” on Monday, February 10, 2020 at 7 pm
