GASPAR YANGA is a Black Liberation based evolving multimedia collaboration, born from RISE x FALL; between rubén garcía marrufo
and maximiliano. Inspired by Gaspar Yanga, an enslaved African in Mexico, that escaped and formed a maroon society on what is now the state of Veracruz, the project takes from our mixed cultures as a border stranded mexican and an afro-chicanx artist, in the wake of empire. Weaving time collapsing narratives through vide installation, site-specific sculpture assemblages, and participatory performances as a means to explore new havens.
