Overview:

A visual quilt of the Latinx experience in California

 

This exhibition pays tribute to the vibrant culture, heritage and resiliency of the Latinx diaspora. Curated by MarinMOCA artist member Luis Garcia, it features the work of seven Northern California artists: Juana Alicia, Edgar Arturo-Camacho, Lark Calderon-Gomez, Luis Garcia, Ramona Garcia, Manuel Ruelas and Pablo Villicana Lara. These artists explore their world view through work that investigates constant⏤and often taboo⏤themes in the Latinx Community, including post-colonial identity, racism, sexual identity, gentrification, immigration, and poverty. 

Curator Luis Garcia states: “ ‘Estado Invincible,’ or ‘Unconquerable State’ means not capable of being subdued or brought under control. I believe that ‘Estado Invincible’ is a state of mind that resides within artists of color and Latinx communities in general. There is resilience within our communities, where the spirit thrives. In a time of division, and uncertainty, it is important to amplify all voices, especially those of underrepresented communities of color. This exhibition hopes to do that, to broaden viewers’ perspectives, to educate, and to reinforce the ‘Unconquerable State’ of mind.”
