She has performed her original monologues nationally most notably at NYU, SF Fringe festival, Chicago Links Hall, and the Detroit Institute of Arts. In 2015, she curated the first serious exhibition of graphic memoirist Alison Bechdel. The exhibition State of Exception, which she co-created with artist Richard Barnes and U-M anthropologist Jason De León, was featured in the New York Times Magazine in 2013, won the Latina Spirit Award at ArtPrize 2015, and opened at Parson’s New School, NYC in 2017.
