Arte de lucha: Obras de Malaquias Montoya

10 de marzo, 2017 • 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Galería Juan Fuentes de Acción Latina
2958 24th Street, San Francisco

Malaquias Montoya es reconocido por los historiadores como uno de los fundadores del movimiento de serigrafía social en el Área de la Bahía de San Francisco a mediados de la década de 1960. Un profesor emérito en la Universidad de California en Davis, la expresión visual única de Montoya es arte de protesta, que representa la resistencia y la fuerza de la humanidad frente a la injusticia y la necesidad de unirse detrás de esa lucha. Esta exposición retrospectiva reunirá obras que abarcan la totalidad del trabajo del maestro de grabado: ¡50 años y contando!

“Es con esta voz que trato de comunicar, acercarme y tocar a otros, especialmente a esa población silenciosa y a menudo ignorada de la clase obrera chicana, mexicana y centroamericana, junto con otras personas privadas de derechos del mundo. Esta forma me permite despertar la conciencia, revelar la realidad y trabajar activamente para transformarla. ¿Qué mejor función para el arte en este momento? Una voz para los que no tiene voz.”

–Malaquias Montoya

“El Arte de la Lucha,” se exhibe ahora hasta el 27 de abril. La Galería Juan R. Fuentes está abierta desde 11 a.m. hasta 5 p.m., Martes-Sábado. Vea más sobre esta exposición y nuestra galería aquí.
