Aqui/Ahora is a multimedia exhibition showcasing a selection of Latino/x artists who are responding to the political and social climate of today. Through an investigative lens the artists delve into issues of commerce and labor, historical narratives seen through an altered perspective, activism and the inevitable cultural collision of our time. The exhibition presents artists Sara Cardona, Francisco Josue Alvarado Araujo, Jeffry Valadez, Melissa Gamez-Herrera, Giovanni Valderas and Fabiola Valenzuela. Each artist and their work creates historical markers that are telling of their place here and now as it relates to the Latino/x experience.
