The Formaldehyde Trip is part of Galería’s series, Queerly Mexican – an exploration of visual dialog across borders and generations about the ongoing struggle to be simultaneously Mexican or Chicanx and queer. Queerly Mexican will feature a series of artist residencies that will culminate in an exhibition in the Spring of 2017 that seeks to transform cultural politics of national/ethnic identity that rest discursively on patriarchal constructs of heterosexism and machismo, narrowly defined womanhood, and rigid binaries of gender and sexuality.

Juan Gabriel Presente
Tribute and Celebration in honor of Juan Gabriel
Galería de la Raza is pleased to host a night where we honor, mourn and celebrate our beloved artist, Juan Gabriel. Known to many as Juanga, his brazenness and conviction will always remind us that out of sorrow and downfall, one can persevere and leave an unfathomable legacy.

Reckoning with Hxstory
Solo show by Carlos F. Jackson
Opening Reception: October 1, 2016 | 6:30PM
Visit our Facebook event page to RSVP
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.
