"Burra/Anarchist" will be on view through October 1.
Marisela Barrera takes center stage in a series of large-scale photographic prints animating the personas of the Donkey Lady, a figure from San Antonio folklore, and Ricardo Flores Magón, an exiled 1900s Mexican journalist who spent time in San Antonio.
Barrera is a writer, performer and storyteller who utilizes her rasquache practice — in the spirit of the underdog — to engage communities by drawing from her own cultural identity.
In addition to the photographs on display, the exhibition opening will feature live music from indie band Buttercup as well as a performance by Barrera herself.
"Burra/Anarchist" is presented as part of Fotoseptiembre and includes photographs by Al Rendon, Anthony Garcia, Antonia Padilla, Paul Escamilla and Guadalupe Acuña.
Free, 7-10 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, on view through October 1, Arthouse at Blue Star, 134 Blue Star, (210) 212-9373, slabcinemaarthouse.com.
