Abstract:
ABSTRACT: This thesis explores Gloria Anzaldúa's notion of mestiza consciousness and its relation to Mexican American performance and poster art. It examines how the traditional conceptions of mestizo identity were redefined by Anzaldúa's Borderlands/La Frontera in an attempt to eradicate oppression through a change of consciousness. Anzaldua's conceptions are then applied to Guillermo Gomez-Peña's performance art discussing the intricacies and complexities of his performances as examples of mestiza consciousness. This thesis finally analyzes various Mexican American posters in relation to both Anzaldúa and Gomez-Peña's art works. It demonstrates that the similarities in the artist's treatment of hybridity illustrate a progressive change in worldview, thus exhibit mestiza consciousness.
