Yvette Mayorga

Episode 124


In this episode we bring you another conversation with a badass chicana artist. This time Babelito sits to chat with his Chicago fave, Yvette Mayorga, to talk about her rising career as a visual artist, her struggles as a Latinx artist and whether or not pozole granos belong in menudo. The artwork of Yvette aims to seduce viewers through its sugar-rush aesthetic and femme impossibility. However, upon close inspection, Yvette aims to go beyond what the eye can see and calls out our complicity in the injustices she denounces in her work. Stay till the end to hear some music recommendations from Babelito and a reminder that the podcast just turned 3 years! Felicidades chicos!!!!
