Interdisciplinary artist and writer Lucía Hinojosa Gaxiola’s time-based practice develops through ephemeral gestures that result in a corpus of text-based, visual and sound pieces. She’s the artistic director of diSONARE, an experimental editorial project from Mexico City. She recently co-founded Rizoma, a series of performance workshops led by an international poet collective for the imprisoned women of Santiaguito de Almoloya de Juárez, Estado de México. Her book The Telaraña Circuit (Tender Buttons Press) is forthcoming.
