Young Latino Artists 20: Within Reach Curator’s Tour
June 14, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Sunday, June 14, 2015 from 12:30 – 1:30 PM
Join Ricky Yanas, guest curator of the 20th annual Young Latino Artists exhibition, for a tour of Young Latino Artists 20: Within Reach.
The Young Latino Artists (YLA) exhibition has historically provided Latina/o artists under the age of thirty-five with professional-level museum experience and exposure. Now in its twentieth year, YLA 20: Within Reach is guest curated by visual artist Ricky Yanas. Mestizaje, as Chicana activist and writer Gloria Anzaldua defined the term, is a border consciousness that comes from the “continual intermarriage between Mexican and American Indians and Spaniards.” Unlike the myth of the American “melting pot”, Mestizaje embraces contradiction and plurality, emphasizing the act of cultural mixing and transition as key to its understanding.
