The Impossibility Performance by Luis Vasquez La Roche Live Stream on Instagram @vcuartstheanderson July 25 11:30am

The Anderson presents Luis Vasquez La Roche’s THE IMPOSSIBILITY PERFORMANCE via Instagram Live (@vcuartstheanderson), at 11:30am on Saturday, July 25. This is the second of two activations conducted via The Anderson’s Instagram Live feed by VCUarts Painting + Printmaking MFA 2020 alumnus Vasquez La Roche. This work is from his Thesis exhibition,  I Hope My Black Skin Don’t Dirt This White Tuxedo.

I have used palm oil in several works. Previously, I covered my body with palm oil. The obvious next step was to create casts. While walking in Richmond, I started picking up bricks to use as a base to place my casts. Based on the research I decided to create a monument, where the casts would lay on top of another to impart the sense of a pile of bodies.
