Here Now: Where We Stand, curated by Anthony Torres, celebrates the 40th Anniversary of The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, founded in San Francisco in 1977 as a result of social struggles for greater equality in the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition honours this history and MCCLA’s role in providing previously under-recognized artists with an alternative space to present their work.

In recognition of this history, Here Now: Where We Stand showcases how art media, images, and texts may serve as a means of personal and social aesthetic engagement and trans-cultural communication, and as vehicles for historical and contemporary cultural discourses, aimed at an expanded redefinition of «American» art in global dialogue.

“Here Now: Where We Stand” includes works from private collections by artists from the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean. The exhibition includes Latino/Latin American artists as well as non-Latinos, for whom Latino/Caribbean art, culture, and issues that affect Latinos and others, serve as sources of inspiration in their work.

Live Performances: TBD
Admission: $5
