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.

Reckoning with Hxstory takes its title from the first sentence of Chicanx Studies founding manifesto, El Plan de Santa Barbara, which states, “For all people, as with individuals, the time comes when they must reckon with their history.” Thus, to reckon with hxstory, or as Anzaldúa states, “taking inventory,” is the first step towards conocimiento/consciousness. In that spirit, this exhibition replaces the i/e in history/herstory with an x to embrace decolonial paradigms. To understand our human condition and position in society we must reflect on the structures that assert racism, colonialism, and oppression. Through thisconocimiento, the personal becomes political and only then can we begin to winnow out the injustices.

Reckoning with Hxstory showcases visual narratives that were catalyst shifts in the Civil Rights Movements over the last six decades. By highlighting these historical events, we once again begin to create an understanding of who we are and provide a decolonial educational praxis platform which is rooted in action and reflection.
