Andie Flores

ANDIE FLORES (b. 1990) (she/her) is a performance artist in Austin, Texas, who uses embarrassment as a medium for investigating hyper, almost obsessive, visibility in a racialized body across barriers of border, history, and capital. Her practice works to unsettle categorical, site-specific expectations of genres of performance (femininity, Latinidad, drag, citizenry) and aims to recontextualize the mechanisms required to do the work of the absurd. Flores creates experimental live performances that pair identity and comedic culture moments with over-exaggerated, often grotesque shapes and sounds. She is fascinated by the urgent task of world-building at the edge of the limits of art-making.  Her work has been shown at Bushwig, Presa House Gallery, The Museum of Human Achievement, Ivester Contemporary, MASS Gallery, Future Front Film Fest, Contrast Film Festival, Fusebox Festival, and The Dallas Latino Cultural Center; and her writing has appeared in fields, Precog, Jezebel, and Remezcla. She was named one of Remezcla’s ‘40 Emerging, Texas-based Artists to Know’ in 2020, and made Glasstire’s ‘Best of 2021’ list. She debuted her first solo stage show, To Get There… You Must Undergo… A Radical Transformation at OUTsider Festival in February 2023 and produced a sold-out 6-show run at Crashbox in November 2023. She was voted best performance artist and among the top three art writers in Concept Animals’ Community Favorites poll of December 2023.
