MaricónX is an ART CONCEPT that creates a safe space for local LGBTQIA Latinx artist to share their art and create dialogue in regards to issues that are affecting their communities.
The MaricónX traveling shows features two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) based art from LGBTQIA Latinx artists. For the purposes of the shows, MaricónX is defined not as an offensive term but as a unifying term. Through art-making by LGBTQIA Latinx artists, such issues surrounding identity, culture, religion, media, politics, social climates, and sexual and gender identity can progress toward a dialogue rather than a debate. Artists are encouraged to investigate their relationship, history, and understanding regarding Queer Latinx issues past and/or present that aid them in their creative process.
These art shows challenge misinformation, making the ignored and stereotyped visible.
