Makara Book Club: TEARS OF THE TRUFFLEPIG

tears trufflepig.jpg

This is the book you didn’t even know you needed to read. Fernando A Flores is a fantastic writer with a thriving imagination. Join us at Makara Center for the Arts on Tuesday, August 20 at 7PM to discuss this trilling, psychedelic border story about narcos (kinda?), exotic animals, ridiculous rich people, and wild experiments.

From the publisher:

A parallel universe. South Texas. A third border wall might be erected between the United States and Mexico, narcotics are legal and there’s a new contraband on the market: filtered animals―species of animals brought back from extinction to amuse the very wealthy. 

Esteban Bellacosa has lived in the border town of MacArthur long enough to know to keep quiet and avoid the dangerous syndicates who make their money through trafficking. But his simple life gets complicated after a swashbuckling journalist invites him to an underground dinner at which filtered animals are served. Bellacosa soon finds himself in the middle of an increasingly perilous and surreal journey, in the course of which he encounters legends of the long-disappeared Aranaña Indian tribe and their object of worship: the mysterious Trufflepig, said to possess strange powers.

Written with infectious verve, bold imagination, and oddball humor, Fernando A. Flores’s Tears of the Trufflepig is an absurdist take on life along the border, an ode to the myths of Mexican culture, and an introduction to a staggeringly smart new voice in American fiction.

SAGE: Workshop #2

**The first 3 workshops of this series are FREE and open to all.**

This project is designed and facilitated by Adriana Sánchez Alexander, a writer, educator, and cultural worker from Santa Ana, CA.

The Santa Ana Grants Equity project launched May 20, 2019 at Makara Center for the Arts. SAGE is a monthly workshop from May-July, culminating in a five-week SAGE Intensive in August. Participants will also get a certificate of completion and access to "Grants Office Hours" for the remainder of 2019.  

The SAGE Project will help participants identify funding opportunities, write successful grant narratives, determine and measure outcomes, and get on a path towards creating sustainable revenue for their project. The goal is to get participants truly submission-ready for 2020, with practical advice and direction on a pathway that fits their idea.  This project is intended for artists, individuals, or organizations/collectives who are working in arts and culture in Santa Ana, who come from communities that have been traditionally underrepresented in terms of grants funding, and who have a project idea they would like to work on.  Participants do NOT need to have nonprofit status as their goal; this workshop series is also for people that want to make it work as a non-non-profit. 

 In considering who is "traditionally underrepresented," we will consider language, socioeconomic status, immigration status, disability, age, and/or LGBTQ+.

Surreal Tea Party featuring Margaret Carson

remedios varo_santa ana_Makara

We are so excited to welcome Margaret Carson to Makara Center for the Arts! Dr. Carson will share a stunning presentation of Remedios Varo’s paintings, accompanied by excerpts of the newly translated Letters, Dreams, and Other Writings.

Remedios Varo (1908–1963) was a Spanish-born painter who entered the Surrealist circle in Paris before the German occupation forced her into exile to Mexico at the end of 1941, where she would stay until the end of her life. Her dream-infused, allegorical work combines the elements of classical training, alchemical mysticism, and fairy-tale science.

Margaret Carson investigates and writes on issues in literary translation, gender and translation, visualities in writing, and women surrealist artists/writers in the Americas. She has published widely as a literary translator from Spanish to English. Authors translated include Sergio Chejfec (Baroni, A Journey, Almost Island Books and My Two Worlds, Open Letter Books), Remedios Varo (Wakefield Press), Teresa Ralli (HemiPress), Jose Tomas de Cuellar (Having a Ball, Oxford UP).

SPLIT TOOTH by Tanya Tagaq

Book Talko Tuesday returns!

SPLIT TOOTH by Tanya Tagaq
January 29, 2019
6:30pm - 7:45pm

Join us at Makara Center for the Arts every other month to talk about books by contemporary Indigenous and Latinx authors. Pick up delicious snacks from our neighbors, Lily's Tacos*, and share your thoughts, critiques, and revelations with other book lovers in an open and casual environment.
*Lily's Tacos closes at 7pm

Copies of the book will be available for check out at Makara on 1/12

PLEASE NOTE: This novel contains adult themes including trauma and sexual violence.

SPLIT TOOTH by Tanya Tagaq

From the publisher:
A girl grows up in Nunavut in the 1970s. She knows joy, and friendship, and parents’ love. She knows boredom, and listlessness, and bullying. She knows the tedium of the everyday world, and the raw, amoral power of the ice and sky, the seductive energy of the animal world. She knows the ravages of alcohol, and violence at the hands of those she should be able to trust. She sees the spirits that surround her, and the immense power that dwarfs all of us.

When she becomes pregnant, she must navigate all this.

Veering back and forth between the grittiest features of a small arctic town, the electrifying proximity of the world of animals, and ravishing world of myth, Tanya Tagaq explores a world where the distinctions between good and evil, animal and human, victim and transgressor, real and imagined lose their meaning, but the guiding power of love remains.

Haunting, brooding, exhilarating, and tender all at once, Tagaq moves effortlessly between fiction and memoir, myth and reality, poetry and prose, and conjures a world and a heroine readers will never forget.

TANYA TAGAQ is an improvisational performer, avant-garde composer, and experimental recording artist who won the 2014 Polaris Music Prize for her album Animism, a work that disrupted the music world in Canada and beyond with its powerfully original vision.

Using Cochinilla & Other Natural Pigments: A Hands-On Painting Workshop

Wednesday, June 6, 6pm-8pm @ Makara Center for the Arts

Traditional cultures have created art from natural pigments for thousands of years, using materials that can literally be found in your own backyard.  For example, the cochinilla insect was used by the Aztec and Maya peoples to make intense red and purple colored dyes, and this insect continues to make its home on prickly pear cacti throughout Southern California.  Culture, history, and art come together in this workshop where participants will learn to gather and use natural materials to make paint pigments while creating their own codex to take home.

SLIDING SCALE $10-$15 NOTAFLOF
*************************************************
In 2018 Sister Spit celebrates its 21st year on the road with stops in California, Arizona and New Mexico from March 2 - March 15 (homecoming @ The STUD), featuring 7 EXCEPTIONAL artists shaping the culture as we know it rn:
🌙Mari Naomi

🌙Andrea Abi-Karam

🌙SPECIAL GUEST: Iuri M. Lara
*************************************************
Some history:
The tour began in San Francisco in the 1990s as a weekly, girls-only open mic that was an alternative to the misogyny-soaked poetry open mics popular around the city at that time. Sister Spit became the first all-girl poetry roadshow at the end of the 90s, and toured regularly with such folks as Eileen Myles, Beth Lisick and Nomy Lamm. 

The tour was revived as Sister Spit: The Next Generation in 2007. In this next incarnation, out of respect to the changing gender landscape of our queer communities, the tour welcomed artists of all genders, including Chinaka Hodge, Dorothy Allison and Justin Vivian Bond. Sister Spit 2018 marks a new chapter in the tour’s history. 

As Radar Productions, the non-profit that houses Sister Spit, has shifted its vision toward Queer & Trans People of Color (QTPOC) specifically, so too has the tour shifted lineup and style.

Celebrating the Music of Alice Coltrane

Alice Coltrane_Makara_Santa Ana

On Saturday, March 3 from 4-6pm, Makara Center for the Arts will host "Celebrating the Music of Alice Coltrane.” The listening session will feature a short presentation, selections from vinyl records, and a screening of the rare 30-minute documentary “Ashram.” Makara will also have a copy of the 2010 biography "Monument Eternal: The Music of Alice Coltrane" by Franya J. Berkman, available for free check-out to our patrons.

Alice Coltrane (1937-2007) mastered multiple instruments including piano, harp, organ, and synthesizer. Her career has often been overshadowed by her husband, John Coltrane, one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. But Alice deserves to be appreciated in her own regard. As a composer, improvisor, and bandleader, she released an unparalleled series of innovative albums from the late 60s through the early 80s—all while raising a family as a single mother and dedicated caretaker of her late husband’s legacy. During this period, her uniquely personal and visionary music fused jazz with Indian ragas, European classical orchestration, cosmic overtones, and an experimental approach.

Alice then devoted herself fully to a spiritual path outside the commercial music industry, changing her name to Turiyasangitandanda (Sanskrit for “Highest Song Of God's Bliss") and founding the Sai Anantam Ashram, a multi-ethnic and multi-generational community in Agoura Hills, CA. The music from their Sunday ceremonies—which combined Hindu chants in the Vedic tradition with African-American gospel roots and other influences—was released posthumously in 2017 as "The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda.”

Makara Center for the Arts welcomes our neighbors to join us in an exploration and appreciation of this groundbreaking artist during Santa Ana’s citywide Boca de Oro festival.
