DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS: A CULTURAL LEGACY, PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE Exhibition

“Four Seasons” by Alfredo de Batuc, 1979

“Four Seasons” by Alfredo de Batuc, 1979

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is an integral part of the cultural and artistic landscape of Los Angeles. Today’s interpretation of the sacred indigenous tradition has been remixed and recycled into a commercial holiday blending Mexican, Latino, and American pop culture iconography with the spiritual aesthetics of the event’s indigenous and Catholic influences. Self Help Graphics (SHG) will trace the evolution of Día de los Muertos in Los Angeles and beyond through an exhibition and publication documenting its four-decade history of art, ritual, and celebration. Since 1972, when SHG organized its first public ritual for Día de los Muertos, its annual commemoration has developed into a complex and unique public observance. Día de los Muertos, A Cultural Legacy: Past, Present, and Future will include historical prints, photographs, and ephemera representing each decade of SHG’s commemorations, as well as three newly commissioned altars from artists Ofelia Esparza (Los Angeles), Gerardo “Acamonchi” Yépiz (Tijuana), and Marcus Kuiland-Nazario (Los Angeles).

Origin Stories Workshop
Oct

12:00pm12:00pm

Origin Stories Workshop

In conjunction with: Día de Los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present and Future, artists Jerri Allyn and Nicole Rademacher present a workshop designed to empower the participants to make and record their own origin stories. Join them in touring the exhibition, creating stories, and making cards.

This 90-minute workshop is designed to empower participants, to record their unique histories. Working in groups, they create an “origin story” of their choice using visual prompts.

The workshop will begin with a brief tour through the Dia de Los Muertos exhibition which features a 4-decade history of visually striking prints, rituals and celebration. The artwork and altars cover a range of both contemporary and historical “origins” of this lively commemoration that occurs throughout the Americas. “Today’s interpretation of the sacred indigenous tradition (in the United States) has been remixed and recycled into a commercial holiday blending Mexican, Latino and American pop culture iconography with the spiritual aesthetics of Dia de los Muertos’ indigenous and Catholic influences.”  - catalogue.

This workshop is recommended for youth and adults ages 12 and up.

ARTISTS

Nicole Rademacher, as a Mexican American adoptee, has recently turned her art practice to also encompass community engagement. Rademacher facilitates workshops with the adoptee constellation: building works collaboratively and creating a space for discussion. Rademacher has exhibited and screened her work worldwide including an exhibition currently on view at LAX Airport. Rademacher currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California with her husband and toddler.

Jerri Allyn, a Community Artist and Educator, creates interactive installations and participatory performance art events that often become a part of public life. She has exhibited internationally and been awarded a Rockefeller Foundation Residency, Italy; International Lila Wallace Fellowship, Mexico; and NEA  grants. In 2015 Allyn produced Hidden in Plain Site: Creative Referendums to Human Trafficking: www.hidden-in-plain-site.com; and continues projects on this topic. Allyn is blessed with a large family immigrating from Ireland, Spain, Britain and Poland. Her 8 siblings have expanded their lineage to include partners from Asia, the Caribbean and Africa. Some have adopted children from Eastern Europe and Latin America. Modern life has the family living on 3 continents, yet they manage regular reunions.

Artist Panel: Un Cuarto Para Cada Corazón

Artist Talk: Un Cuarto Para Cada Corazón

Thu, August 3, 2017

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM 

Self Help Graphics and Art is currently working with Dalila Paola Mendez and a cohort of queer women of color on Queerida, a printmaking atelier. Earlier this year, Gabriel Garcia Roman created a work in our print studio as part of his Queer Icon series and both projects have brought up an opportunity to dialogue on the way places like Self Help Graphics have played a role in supporting and honoring LGBTQ voices.

Moderated by the artist behind Veteranas and Rucas, this gathering of voices across generations will discuss the importance of the arts in building community and safe creative spaces for LGBTQ Chicanxs and Latinxs, how this has evolved on the Eastside, and what can be done to bridge generations today and continue to fill gaps for our LGBTQ family.

Panelists include:

+ Guadalupe Rosales (Veteranas and Rucas, former Self Help Graphics Artist in Residence)
+ Dalila Paola Mendez (Curator of Queerida Printmaking Atelier at SHG, 2017)
Latino Equality Alliance & Mi Centro youth participant Charlie Ruiz Vazquez
+ Miguel Angel Reyes Illustrator 2 (Curator of Homohombre Atelier at SHG, 2008, and Drawing Instructor at Otis College)


Tickets are FREE, but RSVP is kindly requested via Eventbrite link.
