La Chuleta / by Maria Hinojosa | February 3, 2012

La Chuleta

For some the expression La Chuleta is offensive, but not for multimedia artist Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz. She transforms herself into this stereotype of a homegirl from the ghetto to educate and bridge multiple cultures. Through her art and humor, Raimundi-Ortiz says her mission is to bring what she calls the white box of the Museum world to El Barrio. In a lively conversation, Maria Hinojosa talks to Raimundi-Ortiz about identity and stereotypes.
