[exhibit] RAÍCES DEL CARNAVAL – 40 YEARS OF CULTURA IN MISSION // SF

EXHIBIT MAY 5TH, 2018 – JUNE 1ST, 2018

Acción Latina
Juan R. Fuentes Gallery
2958 24th Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

Since 1978, Carnaval has been more than a celebration, it’s been a space to reconnect with our African, Indigenous, and Mestizo roots.

The stories, dances, and colors of our forefathers come to life in the parade and festival to celebrate our triumphs and struggles. Although our roots are spread throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, our cultures unite in our annual Carnaval tradition.

For the 40th anniversary of Carnaval, Acción Latina and Carnaval SF are joining forces to bring you a very special group photo exhibition, featuring iconic images from four–decades of history of the Mission District’s biggest annual party.

Curators: Roberto Hernandez, Robert Werner and Rodrigo Duran

Exhibiting photographers:

Lou Dematteis, Albins Peke Von Mayate, Amanda Nelson, David L. Gregory, David Yu, Doug Kaye, Jane Postiglione, Jayasimha Nuggehalli, Gordon Mak, Ken Osborn, Kyle Adler, Marco Sanchez, Michael Kirschner, Pankaj Bhargava, Raven Sky, Robert Werner, Swee Oh, and Terry Scussel.
