Galería de la Raza is honored to partner with Yosimar Reyes, Artist in Residence at Define American to announce an open call for its upcoming #Undocujoy: Unfathomable Strength exhibition:
#UndocuJoy is a celebration of the day-to-day spirit, passion, intelligence and empathy needed to stand taller in our power. This project will bear witness to the personal narrative which then becomes the collective voice created BY us and FOR us. For as organizers, advocates, elected officials, professionals, and change-agents, we are the embodiment of unfathomable strength. - Yosimar Reyes
