Aqui Estamos y No Nos Vamos called for women of color artists whose works explored the questions: Does your artwork give voice to a resistance, yours and/or something larger? Does your art counter the hateful rhetoric currently circulating, if so how? Does your artwork offer a creative vision as we find ourselves struggling under a fascist state? Does your art provide a path to healing?
The exhibit includes artists from Texas, Florida, California and the borderlands of Mexico/USA. The show gathers art from emerging artists such as Ericka Bolta and Maritza Torres and displays them alongside distinguished artists such as Ester Hernandez and Liliana Wilson.
Through installations, sculptures, textiles, music, paintings, photographs and more the exhibition gives viewers an insight on social and personal strife and piercing visions of the present and a futuro con Esperanza.
