Fritzia Irízar presents her recent film, White Chameleon/HFCS, accompanied live by the low tones of a bassoon player. White Chameleon/HFCS is a continuation of Irízar’s work on the psychological, economic, and symbolic conditions of value, and how industries—in this case the machinations of the sugar industry—invest heavily in fictions and sleights-of-hand to downplay the life-threatening realities of their product. Following this performance, White Chameleon/HFCS will be on view through August 20. 

Fritzia Irízar (born 1977; Culiacán, Sinaloa) studied Fine Arts at the Escuela Nacional de Pintura Escultura y Grabado “La Esmeralda” in Mexico City.

Fritzia Irízar appears in conjunction with her residency and project at the Headlands Center for the Arts.
