“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. In an accompanying brochure, curator Anthony Torres states, that “Here Now; Where We Stand” celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the founding of The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts as a result of social struggles for greater equality in the 1960s and 1970s, and honors its role in providing previously marginalized artists with an alternative space to present their work.”

 

On view are works by Artists: Alexandra Blum, Victor Cartagena, Rene Castro, Elizabeth Catlett, Guiseppe Dezza, Doyle Foreman, Art Hazelwood, Oscar Frias, Juan R. Fuentes, Andrea Gomez, Estér Hernandez, Mildred Howard, Yolanda Lopez, Gera Lozano, Geri Montano, Jim Nikas, José Guadalupe Posada, Calixto Robles, Patricia Rodriguez, Michael Roman, Jos Sances, Marsha Shaw, Carrie Mae Weems, Mariana Yampolsky, René Yañez, Berkeley High School Arts and Humanities Academy, San Francisco Poster Syndicate, and The Great Tortilla Conspiracy.
