Exhibition Title: "Que Siga La Fiesta: A Celebration of Queer & Trans Resilience In Times Of Crisis."
Join us for a Q&A with Que Siga La Fiesta! artists Julio Salgado and La Chucha Jose Marquez followed by a screen printing and caricature session. This space will be used to celebrate queerness and to commemorate the one year anniversary of the PULSE tragedy.
Almost a year ago, artists Julio Salgado and Chucha Marquez were part of another show called #Xotalicious. Just days after that show, tragedy hit our Queer & Trans People of Color community at Pulse Nighclub. The rest of the world learned about how QTPOC has been terrorized on the daily. What pissed the artists off was that it took a tragic moment for everyone to see the QTPOC community. The goal of this exhibit is to celebrate our QTPOC community while we're alive and thriving!
We hope to see you here!
Special thanks to these folks for making this space possible:
Akonadi Foundation's Beloved Community Fund for making this possible, to Studio Grand for housing this work, and to Galeria de la Raza for serving as our fiscal sponsors. We love our community!!
