Saturday, May 14: Marco Antonio Huerta & Marcel Alcalá



Marco Antonio Huerta: Mexican translator and poet. Won the Northeast Regional Poetry Award in 2005. Author of the poetry collections: La semana milagrosa (Conarte, 2006), Golden Boy (Letras de Pasto Verde, 2009), Hay un jardín (Tierra Adentro, 2009). Magnitud/e (Gusanos de la nada, 2012) is a poem-in-progress written together with Sara Uribe and translated into English by John Pluecker. His work has been published in several periodicals and anthologies in Mexico, Spain, Uruguay, and the United States. Currently Huerta is a student at the MFA in Writing program at UC San Diego.

Marcel Alcala (b. 1990 in Santa Ana, CA) creates events and encounters that upend the expectation of art as a discrete work exhibited for a specific period of time. Often collaborating with artists and specialists in fields such as science, literature, film, music, and architecture, Alcala ventures outside of institutional structures to contextualize his work in public space. Alcala’s diverse practice includes performance, live situations, installations, objects, and drawings. He graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012, and currently lives in Los Angeles. Here, he organizes performance/poetry exhibitions at the McDonalds on Sunset in Silverlake, researches and enacts "Clown" performances around the country, does Improv in real time called CNX2 (Creating New Content Now), and writes poetry on identity politics and the future/status of the "brown" body. Like the socially necessary figure of the clown that fascinates him, Alcala uses humor, play, and the absurd to critique the extremes and everyday banalities of societal power.
