The Q-Sides
Contemporary Photography
Closing Reception: July 2 | 7-10PM

Featuring: Singing Bois serenading oldies

Galería de la Raza is pleased to present The Q-Sides, an exhibition of photographs and film that challenge long-held assumptions regarding the traditional exclusivity of heterosexuality in lowrider culture. Artists Vero Majano, DJ Brown Amy (Amy Martinez), and Kari Orvik reinterpret the album covers of East Side Story, Volumes 1-12 through a re-staging and re-imagining of queer inclusion within the traditionally heterosexual public image of lowrider culture. 


Fri 6/5 - Sun 7/5
Maricón Collective
Digital Mural

Galería de la Raza is pleased to announce its newest digital mural installation, Por Vida, a work by Manuel Paul of the Los Angeles-based Maricón Collective. Timed in honor of San Francsico Pride Month and inspired by the dedicated work of Queer People of Color, Paul’s art celebrates achievement and strength in the LBGT community.

Statement in Response to the Derogatory Comments and Threats
Maricón Collective and The Q-Sides

UPDATE June 21, 2015: The defacement and re-defacement of the current digital mural by Manuel Paul of Maricón Collective has only proven the credibility of its purpose. Galeria de la Raza believes in the importance of continued dialogue about LGBTQ visibility, awareness, and acceptance in the Mission District and within the greater Latin@ communities. Galería does not condone actions of hate, violence and homophobia and is dedicated to continuing to promote understanding and tolerance through peaceful means. While ignorance and hate may have been expressed by the few, we thank the extraordinarily generous support we have received from the vast majority of the community. We are in the process of organizing a community forum to engage the larger community in the coming days but in the meantime we need to raise funds to fix the current mural.
