Exhibition: Xicanx Futurity

Thursday, March 28, 2019, 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM

Xicanx Futurity focuses on the work of six Xicana artists: Celia Herrera Rodríguez, Felicia Montes, Gina Aparicio, Gilda Posada, Margaret ‘Quica’ Alarcón, and Melanie Cervantes. These artists engage in an intergenerational dialogue that centers Indigenous forms of communal and hemispheric ceremony, rooted in sacred relations. Collectively, their respective artistic practices inform an emerging conceptual and aesthetic decolonial social practice within Chicana/o/x Art.

Guest Curators: Carlos Jackson, Associate Professor & Chair, Chicana/o Studies, UC Davis María Esther Fernández, Chief Curator, Triton Museum of Art, Susy Zepeda, Assistant Professor Chicana/o Studies, UC Davis
