Naomi Rincon-Gallardo "The Formaldehyde Trip"

Photo: Fabiola Torres Alzaga

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.

"Mujeres Luz" by Talavera-Ballón
Studio 24

Mujeres Luz is an art exhibit dedicated to Las Patronas and migrants who travel on La Bestia inspired by the film All of Me (Llevate mis Amores). When Talavera-Ballón saw the movie at the San Francisco Film Festival last year, he was so moved that he traveled to Veracruz, Mexico to meet and paint these incredible women.
