Stereomongrel is a collaborative video piece created by Luis Gispert and Jeff Reed. The film is composed of fragmented moments that focus on a young girl who unleashes supernatural powers and enters a hyperreality. After her birthday celebration is ruined by her dysfunctional parents, the protagonist wanders through the streets of New York City and into the Whitney Museum of American Art, where she encounters several mystical characters. The visual aesthetics brim with contemporary and historical references to the supernatural, hip-hop culture, and fashion. The fact that the narrative is set within a museum adds another layer of complexity to the exploration of identity. By highlighting that none of the works in the galleries are by Latin American artists, Gispert and Reed provide commentary on the lack of representation in cultural institutions.
