Somos/Funky

We are very excited to announce our next exhibition, Somos/Funky. A group show curated by Acción Latina Executive Director Josué Rojas and Acción Latina Cultural Arts Manager Fatima Ramirez, Somos/Funky celebrates the Mission and the colorful characters who live here.

CURATORIAL  STATEMENT

This funky group show uplifts the spirit of San Francisco and particularly the Mission District as a refuge for outsiders, satirical thinkers, artists, and creatives. We’re especially interested in highlighting artists who reflect the social consciousness of our neighborhood post Mission School and Chicano movement aesthetics. We’re not seeking to provide an “end-all” or definitive exposé of alternative art, rather we seek to provide a vignette and snapshot of a moment in time as seen through some of our favorite, not categorizable artists.  

FEATURED ARTISTS:

If journalists seek to tell the truth, they cannot remain neutral when families are systematically ripped apart. Shoutout to  @mabeljmnz  for rallying members of the press + moderating today’s powerful event and to  @alexis .terrazas Editor in Chief of  @eltecogram  for speaking out against ICE detention centers.  #Closethecamps   #objectivityisamyth   #familiesbelongtogether   #30daysofaction
