Power Through the Future Exhibition Opening
until Saturday, June 10th.
Exhibition Dates: June 7th, 2017 – July 8th, 2017
Galería de la Raza is pleased to present Power Through the Future. Under the new administration our communities have found themselves actively resisting through protest and mobilization.
Millennials have been at the forefront of these movements and actions that oppose racist and discriminatory rhetoric. In light of their bold stance, we surveyed the nation through an open call titled the Future vs. 45, and what we present to you is a collection of narratives that form an emerging artivist group exhibition.
Galería’s goal was to provide the public with an understanding of how youth (ages 14 – 21) define and propel their resistance. Several works included in this exhibition depict collective struggles, healing and empowerment initiatives; while others bring forward personal issues affecting their families and their own personal identities. In some works, we see the artivists’ ideals serve as a driving force by the way in which they address and are actively shaping their environments and communities – whether it be dreaming of new sci fi realities, challenging notions of gender or reminding us of the structural impediments they face. Their vantage points are indeed the voices we have been waiting for!
