Acción Latina’s Community Residency exhibition, The ’80s Matter in the Mission, transports visitors into the influential art and activism of San Francisco’s Mission District in the 1980s.

Through a vibrant new mural and a range of spirited artworks commissioned by local artists, the presentation celebrates the Latinx creators and organizers who activated the Mission with murals, multimedia art, and advocacy.

Co-curators Fátima Ramírez and Paul S. Flores pay special tribute to artists who responded to the AIDS epidemic and the immigration of Central American refugees to the Mission District in the ’80s.


Elizabeth Blancas, Josué Rojas, Joe Ramos, Tanya Orellana, Rafael Arana, Alexander Hernandez, and the Marigold Project
