(re-)Unión de los Pueblos (de)Colonizados has as its central focus the U.S. Latinx experience. Much of the U.S. Latinx experience, the part from which transnational solidarity should necessarily spring forth, consists of the diverse peoples of Latin American descent confronting one another, building identity together, and understanding themselves through understanding each other. Often enough, this occurs in settings like La Peña Cultural Center.

This exhibition is organized according to three broad themes: The Indigenous and Afro-Indigenous roots of Latinidad and its recuperation as a form of decolonizing healing; Pieces addressing U.S. Latinx and pan-Latinx solidarity as a form of decolonial love, and finally, Works expressing Latinx-produced transnational anti-imperial/anticolonial solidarity (with special attention to current conflicts) as part of constructing the pluriversal (“the drawing from other worldviews” –  a concept originating mainly from Indigenous relational worldviews in Latin America).

Featuring works from:

  • Juan R. Fuentes: Chicano Artist living in San Francisco, California, a long time cultural worker, art teacher and social activist/poster maker and print maker.
  • Pepe Coronado: Dominican artist, founding member of the print collective Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA, founder of Coronado Print Studio, and was a resident teaching artist at the Hudson River Museum in New York.
  • Sandra C. Fernández: Ecuadorian American artist, currently living in Texas, whose work is rooted in the transborder experiences of exile, dislocation, relocation, and memory.
  • Lisa Kokin: anti-Zionist Jewish-American artist, teacher, and mentor currently living in El Sobrante, California. Her work weaves stories of collective memory with the sociopolitical realities of our time.
  • Juana Alicia: Chicana Artist who has been creating murals and working as a printmaker, sculptor, illustrator, and studio painter for over thirty years. Her work addresses issues of social justice, gender equality, environmental crisis and the power of resistance and revolution.

Curated by Biel Delgado Trabal, a Jersey-born Boricua, Graduate Research Scholar at the Center for the Arts & Religion (CARe), Graduate Research Fellow at the Latinx Research Center, Archivist at La Peña Cultural Center and Research Associate at Native Bound Unbound.
