Current Exhibition

Ralph Maradiaga | Sun in Scorpio
An Unerring Gift of Leadership
Sat 10/4 - Sun 11/9

The exhibition features the art of one of Galería’s co-founders, the late Ralph Maradiaga, and is guest-curated by Dr. Amalia Mesa-Bains.

Opening Reception: October 4 | 6pm - 9pm

In observance of Galería de la Raza’s 44th anniversary, we pause to honor and reflect on the contributions and visions of one of our own: Ralph Maradiaga. His unerring gift of leadership combined with his own unique talents and skills contributed greatly to the broader understanding of Chicano/Latino art and subsequently cemented the Latino presence on both the national and international art scenes.

Blooming In The Midst of Gentrification
Digital Mural
"Blooming In The Midst of Gentrification" is a collaboration between youth from People Organizing to Demand Environmental & Economic Rights (P.O.D.E.R.), Galeria De La Raza and CultureStrike. The young activists from P.O.D.E.R. collaborated with CultureStrike artists Susa Cortez and Julio Salgado on a billboard that portrayed some of the things they are doing to fight back against gentrification. They specifically wanted to hight light their #PUEBLOTE campaign where P.O.D.E.R. has organized with Mission residents to reclaim public lands for community use based on community planning efforts that bring together the knowledge and experience of neighborhood residents.
