The art show title "Shadow Beast: Creating Sin Vergüenza" is inspired by the writings of Gloria E. Anzaldúa in the "Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza." Anzaldúa speaks to resisting limitations ranging from the self-imposed constraints to oppressive societal and political restraints. Anzaldúa writes, “There is a rebel in me – the Shadow-Beast. It is a part of me that refuses to take orders from outside authorities. It refuses to take orders from my conscious will, it threatens the sovereignty of my rulership.” The Shadow-Beast is the ganas to get up in the morning and write the novel you need to write, it is the poder to inner reflect and dissect ourselves to evolve into the light the world needs, it is the brush stroke that creates worlds that speak volumes of marginalized stories, it is the movement of the body that shapes and embodies sacred dances, it is questioning authority and yourself, it is rebellion, it is challenging, it is creating sin vergüenza.

El Mundo Zurdo seeks to provide a place for scholars, students, artists, and community, to come together with the intention of engaging in the continued study of Gloria E. Anzaldúa's intellectual works.

This event is sponsored and hosted by The Society for the Study of Gloria E. Anzaldúa (SSGA) and Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
