Xandra Ibarra, also known by the alias of La Chica Boom, talks to puertorriqueña artist nibia pastrana santiago about exhaustion and laziness and how these qualities can be embodied within the performance work each of them create. This is a bilingual conversation that breaks with the binary of English versus Español, a talk about refusal, unresolved slips, and the physicality of these efforts. Xandra Ibarra won last year's Queer Art Prize Award for Recent Work, “The Hook Up/Displacement/Barhopping/Drama Tour" and her upcoming solo exhibition opens at The Knockdown Center August 29th. nibia pastrana santiago will participate in the 2019 version of the Whitney Biennial.
