Accion Latina: Opening Reception for New Mestizx

May 24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Accion Latina in the opening reception of New Mestizx, which celebrates transcultural hybridity and explores what emerges when cultural identities, histories, and people intersect in the Bay Area. The works on view reflect the experience of twelve artists of Filipino and Latinx heritage living in between worlds as they navigate their identity through the lens of New Mestizx, a term inspired by writer Gloria Anzaldúa.

Through photography, mixed media, prints, paintings, textile, and audio installations, artists explore how gentrification, motherhood, transnational migration and intergenerational transmission of culture informs how they choose to remember or redefine traditions.
