BRAGGING RIGHTS is an hour-long video documentary that chronicles the vibrant history of the urban game of stickball through its colorful players.

Stickball has been played in the streets of New York City since the early 1920’s and is known as “the poor man’s baseball.” Stickball is the ultimate in improvising much with very little. Up until the 1960’s, hydrants, cars and sometimes old men sunning in chairs were bases. During that time, many ethnic communities that would fight each other any other day of the week, would compete on the stickball field on Sundays. Over time, racial barriers were broken and many of the players became lifelong friends.

Through the persistence and the passion of a tight-knit community brought together by tradition, the documentary chronicles what has become a national game of all family members. BRAGGING RIGHTS underscores the struggle to overcome and embrace difference and triumph over adversity.

an exhibition in two parts: at MediaNoche and Casa Puebla
September 4 – October 12, 2007
Drawings and Mulitmedia by Antonia Guerrero
Opening Reception at MediaNoche: Wednesday, September 12, 6PM – 9PM

Two concurrent exhibitions allow artist Antonia Guerrero to explore the Mexican immigrant experience through different media, articulating a lightness of being that challenges our notions of culture and identity. Crossing the Mexico/U.S. border becomes a rite of passage that is self-contradictory, self-affirming and transformative.

The immigrant is iconically in a state of coming and going, of absence and presence. Through her drawings, the artist establishes a verisimilitude of home at Casa Puebla that is overturned by the virtual reality of a foreign land at MediaNoche. Both become illusive worlds that do not clash as much as meld the familiar with the unfamiliar.

Antonia Guerrero is an award-winning Mexican artist working in a variety of media. Her recent work combines photorealistic paintings and drawings re-purposed for her multimedia installations that include video, photographs, digital prints and performance. She has exhibited throughout the U.S. and Mexico, including the Snite Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art of Mexico. Guerrero studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Mexico City and at Pratt Institute in New York City.

Hard Tails

Author Arnaldo Cruz-Malavé will be joined in a reading from his new book by Jorge
Merced, Associate Artistic Director of Pregones Theater, and will sign copies.

In the tradition of the Latin American testimonio, Queer Latino Testimonio is the story of Juan Rivera, a.k.a. Juanito Xtravaganza, a Latino runaway youth who ends up homeless in the streets of New York in the late 70s and becomes partner of the internationally famous 1980s Pop artist Keith Haring during some of the most frenetically productive years of his brief life, as told to the author and retold by him. A hybrid text–part testimonio, part linguistic and cultural analysis, and part art criticism–this is also a history of New York Latino neighborhoods during this
period of devastating disinvestment and gentrification, as well as a personal, heart-felt meditation on the art of listening and the ethical limits of representing queer Latino lives.

Praise for Queer Latino Testimonio, Keith Haring, and Juanito Xtravaganza

“A story of the abject, an urban cultural history, and a literary meditation, Queer Latino Testimonio is a glorious assemblage of voices, images, rhythms, and sensualities of the turbulent last two decades of twentieth century New York City. A stirring portrait of the upheavals, deaths, and hopeful futures of bodies under siege. A marvelous piece of scholarship!”–Martin F. Manalansan IV, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and author of Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora

“Narrated with sensitivity and style, Queer Latino Testimonio reminds us that the greatest of our cultural icons are never simply isolated geniuses, but instead reflections of the messy, funky, difficult, exasperating and exciting realities of everyday life. In a word, the book you hold in your hands is legendary!”–Robert F. Reid-Pharr, Professor of English, CUNY Graduate School, and author of Once You Go Black: Choice, Desire, and the Black American Intellectual

“A thrilling biography of a character that is both real and imagined, and a fresh vision of what Cultural Studies can become.”–Mayra Santos-Febres, Professor of Hispanic Literatures, University of Puerto Rico, and author of Sirena Selena

“An alluring, uncompromising tale of tails in the waning years of the age of x-travagance, and the dawn of the age of AIDS.”–Rubén Ríos-Avila, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Puerto Rico, and author of La Raza Cómica.

Event is free and open to the public, but subject to change. Please call ahead to confirm. 212-721-5282

them. Behind the scenes footage also on display.
