XoQUE Art in Motion


We stand upon a land that carries the footsteps of millennia of Kumeyaay people. XoQUE seeks to evoke conversations regarding the Kumeyaay people who struggle to stay in the community despite the man-made wall between the U.S. and Mexico border. Experience an evening of decolonization through large scale art installations, social engagement, live performance, education, hands-on clay sculpting, and meaningful dialogue. Guests are invited to transform a 6 x 4-foot sculpture of a Native woman’s face with painted leaves and weave native pattern cloth to the braids around her face, bringing forth the Native people of this land that continue to exist and thrive. Throughout the evening, the weaving will become a Maijawee serpent, a sacred Indigenous symbol of creation. During specific times in the evening, participants will be asked to join a sacred circle on the map of Kumeyaay lands where participants will create a community ring of clay that will involve “gifting” their neighbor with small clay sculptures. A beautiful and powerful experience appropriate for all ages.
