ELA 26: Things Left UnsaidJune 4, 2021 – August 29, 2021
Guest Curator Coka Trevino will invite artists to participate in All Things Left Unsaid, this year’s YLA (or Latinx Emerging Artists) exhibition. The exhibition will focus on identity, sense of belonging, and roots, which are constant themes in Latinx minds. The complex sense of self is integrated by elements that encompass centuries of history, culture, oppression, and change. This exhibition reflects on family, heritage, self-re-discovery, and all the things left unsaid by our ancestors.Learn More
