About Mujeres Malas:
An evolving socially conscious practice, Mujeres Malas grows with collaboration and communal support. Our hands, voices, and resources are dedicated to building connections and examining our demographic’s history to guide us on a path of healing and a future where latinx bodies are respected and liberated.

Mujeres Malas is a multidisciplinary artist collective composed of Natalia Barrientos, Leticia Contreras, Jessica González, Karen Y. Martinez, Moe Penders, and Arely Peña, all artists practicing in various mediums in Houston, Texas and Tarija, Bolivia. In October of 2017, Mujeres Malas debuted with “Lo que me dijeron Was” a performance that critiques societal limitations placed on our members. This performance shared experiences and trauma imposed by machismo, fat-phobia, racism, Mexican hegemony, misogyny, transphobia, and homophobia. In a time when continuous attacks on the latinx community are the norm, Mujeres Malas challenges these mechanisms of oppression collectively.

About Guerra Girl:

Jessica Jill Guerra is a Houston-based printmaker and designer with a pure love of expressing beauty, from printmaking on lush paper and fabric to outdoor painting on metal and brick. Her designs are guided by an early love of woodcuts and nature, with romantic energy emanating from her velvety florals, textiles, and inky impressions. Though her rhythmic patterns break rules with space and composition, Jessica's work is guided by her substance and technical detail, built upon years of painting architectural illustrations (while daydreaming floral patterns).
