Salonathon - Vajaqueque Brown - 7.9.12
Every Monday, artists of all types descend upon Beauty Bar to bring to life works that defy traditional genres, from dance pieces crafted in basements to puppet shows put together in attics to stories written on the CTA to the side projects of local legends. Conceived and curated by Jane Beachy, SALONATHON strives to support the creation of new, emerging and underground art in Chicago and beyond.
Jacquelyn Carmen Guerrero, performing under the name Vajaqueque Brown, is a queer AfroCubaRican performance artist originally from Miami. Their preferred gender pronoun is JB. JB is interested in exploring expressions of physical love, as well as their personal and cultural queer and Latin@ histories through their performance werq.
