S24 presents African Indigenous Swag
by Azteca Negra, Tres Mercedes, and Soldadera

For the 2015 launch of Studio 24 Presents, Galería de la Raza welcomes local Bay Area artists working with textiles: Azteca Negra, Soldadera and Tres Mercedes. These three artists work with fabrics and patterns that reference their Afro-Indigenous histories and bring them into contemporary urban objects and merchandize. The hand made objects recall histories of liberation, honor, pride, boldness, resistance, revolution and spiritual meanings. The showcased items are firmly rooted in identity and merge culture, modern art, geometric principles and traditional textiles that are incorporated in shoes, hats, earrings, and scarves, amongst many other items that celebrate and share traditional and modern art-form practices, beliefs, and positive messages.


Sat 4/11 - Sun 5/31
IN REFERENCE TO: Mexican Women of San Francisco
Digital Mural by Alejandra Regalado

In honor of the work resulting from Alejandra Regalado’s 2014 Artist-In-Residency Project, In Reference To, Galería de la Raza presents the latest digital mural, which features photos from her work in San Francisco. The series of photos taken during Regalado’s time in in the city represents one part of a six-part series, from six different cities, culminating in the portraits of 500 Mexican immigrant women as well as an accompanying 500 images of singular objects selected by each woman as a reminder of her life left behind in Mexico. In Reference To explores the experience of Mexican female immigrants across America and investigates issues of cultural identity and femininity.

Contemporary Photography
Opening Reception: Friday, June 5, 6-10pm

Featuring: DJ Daniela (Xica Soul) and Lowrider car show with rides featured in the exhibition

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.
