Texture translations features three performance artists tracing a lineage of personal and ancestral histories through materials that transmute into personal becomings. Through narrative, voice, language, and organic material artists Devyn Mañibo, Nneka Scruggs and Aida Ramirez surface memory while simultaneously collapsing present time in hopes of transcending and building a bridge in between self and the past, while looking for a future.
