When Irma Herrera gives her name its correct Spanish pronunciation, people sometimes assume she’s a foreigner – never mind that the native English-speaker’s family has been in South Texas for generations, or that she is an award-winning social justice activista, lawyer, and journalist.
Tell me Your Name is one woman’s journey from a small segregated South Texas town to the Bay Area’s multicultural mecca. What part of Irma’s identity is she asked to give up for the sake of fitting in and getting along? How can a simple introduction turn into a potential battle to be heard and seen? Weaving history and comedic insights into stories about names, this solo performer invites us to consider how open and welcoming we really are.

I am an artist working and living in Sonoma County. I do lithography, drawing and mixed medium constructions. I was born in Texas and I come from a migrant farmworker background. I have been doing gum Arabic paintings on paper, aluminum and lithographic ink. The meaning of the work has many levels but the most obvious is renewal, transformation, something dying to be born again; the cycle of life, both physically and symbolically.
