Space Time presents: Guillermo Gómez-Peña + Rancho Shampoo

Our ongoing partnership with Space Time responds to works on display, presenting rare artist videos and live performances. July’s collaboration responds to Celia Àlvarez Muñoz, featuring video work by Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Adriene Jenik, Roberto Sifuentes (El Naftazteca: Cyber-Aztec TV for 2000 A.D.) and a performance by Rancho Shampoo.

Guillermo Gómez-Peña is a Chicano performance artist, writer, activist, and educator. He was born in Mexico City, and moved to the US in 1978, earning a BA and MA at California Institute of the Arts. He has created work in multiple media, including performance art, experimental radio, video, photography and installation art.

Guillermo Estrada (Ranchoo Shampoo) holds a BA in History and an MFA from UCSD in Visual Art. Within the visual arts, his work is developed between the performative, music, and film. He is co-founder of the festival "Doña Pancha Fest" and Director of the audiovisual project "La Catedral del Underground."

Rancho Shampoo and the Indian Dub Orchestra (Guillermo Estrada, Rubén Alonso Tamayo, Rodo Ibarra, Julián González, David Bautista Toledo) is a group of “Aliendígenas” from the border regions of California and Mexico. This experimental musical performance explores identities through the concept of aliendigenismo, or the shifting/transcendance of a person or group through real and spiritual borders, territories, physical bodies, and realities. Rancho Shampoo was recently included in the 2023 MexiCali Biennial, "Land of Milk & Honey" at The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture & Industry.
