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.
+ Guadalupe Rosales (Veteranas and Rucas, former Self Help Graphics Artist in Residence)
