The exhibition—the latest in a long line of collaborations between SFMOMA and Galería de la Raza—presents a three-quarter-scale mural, a set of postcards featuring one mural for each year of the program, and a selection of silkscreened posters reflecting the Latino and Chicano experience and the Galería’s commitment to civic engagement.

Reckoning with Hxstory
Solo show by Carlos F. Jackson
Galería de la Raza presents Reckoning with Hxstory, a solo show by Carlos F. Jackson. Works presented bring together three strains of imagery, all manifested as large format 3’ x 4’ screenprints. Utilizing historical movements, Jackson builds a narrative that highlights structural inequalities through the use of textual statements, contemporary manifestations, and visual breakdowns of key foundational Chicanx texts that provide a decolonial theoretical basis for action.

¡Mi Gente Vota!
Studio 24 Launches New Civic Engagement Project
Studio 24 is excited to launch a new project called ¡Mi Gente Vota!
Prints have historically been known for the ability to promote unity among a community of people. Often these images can articulate an idea and disseminate it quickly and effectively; they are announcements, visions, and ideals nourished by artists to rally community together. As an institution that has provided an international and intergenerational forum for the examination and expression of artistic concepts central to the Chicano/Latino experience, Galería de la Raza (Galería) has once again committed dedicated space in Studio 24 to engage communities with the digital and screen printmaking traditions.
As 2016 marks an election year, our first project aims to engage nuestra gente in the electoral process, either by inciting dialogue or by encouraging folks to take the next step to vote. Our first portfolio titled ¡Mi Gente Vota! commissioned works by Lenny Correa, Eric Garcia, Chris Robertson, and Lexx Valdez. The poster campaign will focus on 3 get out the vote activities: 1) we will circulate 11” x 17” non-partisan prints by each artist across the U.S. free of charge; 2) we will host a series of cultural interventions at various Bay Area sites where we will engage the public in the printmaking activity; 3) we will create a dedicated website and social media channels providing information on voter registration and other opportunities for civic engagement.
Visit Mi Gente Vota for more information and to download the posters.
Also find the project on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. We encourage you to use the #migentevota hastag.
