Artist Platica- Aqui Estamos y No Nos Vamos
May 12, 2017
Join us for an artist plática with some of the artists in "Aquí Estamos y No Nos Vamos" on Friday May 12. Artists on panel TBA.
"Aquí Estamos Y No Nos Vamos," highlights the resistance, solidarity, anger, hope, and healing women of color are experiencing in response to the abusive and oppressive rhetoric that is/was disseminated during Trump’s campaign and carried on into his presidency. The art speaks to a transformation of a social or personal strife that translates into piercing visions of the present and a futuro con Esperanza. The artists featured in this exhibit believe that art must address the abuse on our bodies, communities, and lands. The women of color artists featured in this exhibit are working class, immigrant, queer, and create artwork ranging from traditional visual art to sound art to sculpture to textile and much more.
This event is FREE to the public and exhibit hours are Monday- Friday 10 a.m.- 7 p.m. and will be on view until May 26.
This exhibit is part of our 30th Anniversary celebrations of the Esperanza. This exhibit is curated by Rebel Mariposa.
