Mexic-Arte Museum proudly presents ELA (Emerging
Latinx Artists) 25: Intersección: Choque & Alivio, Intersection: Shock & Relief, (formally known as YLA, Young Latinx Artists) which celebrates the last twenty five years of exhibitions featuring emerging Latinx artists. This exhibition will showcase artists converging at the crossroads of aesthetic interests and cultural history. The exhibition aims to discover shared life experiences, a (s)mashup or crash (choque) at intersecting lanes of similarities and differences as expressed in the artistically diverse artworks. In reaction to this historical era of identity politics and civic unrest, these artists respond in a visual dialogue, drawing from their cultural experience and sociopolitical consciousness. This year’s exhibition will be curated by Dr. George Vargas, Curator and Director of Programs at Mexic-Arte Museum.
