Note: Marca X is presented at two galleries, and there are exhibition opening receptions at both locations. In addition to this opening at The Harvard Ed Portal's Crossing Gallery Opening, the opening at La Galería at Villa Victoria Center for the Arts is on Friday, January 19 from 6-8pm.
For the Boston LGBTQIA Artists Alliance's fourteenth exhibition, BLAA partnered with Inquilinos Boricuas en Accion (IBA) and La Galería at Villa Victoria Center for the Arts, the Harvard Ed Portal's Crossings Gallery (HEP), and DRCLAS.
This exhibition will offer a platform of self-expression for LGBTQIA Latinx artists. Often marginalized by the dominant culture even within their own communities, this show celebrates the intersectional identities of these artists, offering a space for empowerment, community, representation and visibility. This exhibition will contain several unique, distinctive voices (both conceptually and aesthetically) that also function as part of a larger collective conversation about contemporary intersectionality.
The exhibition is on view from January 11, 2018 - February 15, 2018 at the Harvard Ed Portal's Crossing Gallery and from January 19, 2018 - February 16, 2018 at La Galería at Villa Victoria Center for the Arts.
The ten Boston-area artists featured in this exhibit are Anais Arias-Aragon, Izzy Berdan, Ethel Calderin, Jay Calderin, Maynor Campos, Nathaniel Devarie, Rixy Fernandez, Eddie Maisonet, Audrey Rodriguez, and Ming Li Wu.
