New Mestizx celebrates transcultural hybridity, exploring what emerges when cultural identities, histories, and people intersect in the Bay Area. The works on view reflect the experience of twelve artists of Filipinx 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.
Sami Schilf is a digital artist, muralist, and emerging curator whose work centers in the lived experience of hybridity. As a second generation mestiza (or ‘tisay’ in Tagalog) born in San Francisco, her work plays with the tension between disassociation and reclamation of cultural identity, history, and inheritance.
