4th Annual Latino/a Life Photo Exhibit

Curator: Mabel Jiménez
Artist: Group*
Displayed: Jan 14, 2017 – Feb. 24, 2017

We changed the name of our annual photo exhibit (from “Latino Life in the Bay” to “Latino Life”), but the focus was essentially the same: showcasing the diversity of the Latino experience via the lens of El Tecolote’s highly talented up-and-coming photojournalists.

At the time, the community was still reeling from the surprise election of Donald Trump and the subsequent backlash against communities of color. The annual theme was an added dimension of significance as curator Mabel Jiménez hoped to curate images of resistance and to portray the harsh realities facing our community and other communities of color.
