Forty? That's Hella Old

“Galería 4.0, a Retrospective celebrates the significant impact our querido Latino art gallery has had in putting Chicano/Latino art in the public spotlight. You could be led to think that an inexhaustible team of art enthusiasts works around the clock at that joint to keep an impressively varied performance schedule and maniacally diverse visual art panoply alive and well deep in the Mission — and you would be right. Born from and raised by social justice ambitions, the gallery has hosted innumerable Bay Area art luminaries, including writer and visual artist Jaime Cortez, whose writing and sculpture has been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Oakland Museum of California, the Berkeley Art Museum, and beyond. This evening’s exhibit will span the 40 years it has been in existence, with well over 40 artists represented. Any art institution would be lucky to so seamlessly represent the expanse of Chicano/Latino experience: queer and straight, indigenous and mixed, old and young, conceptual and representative art, and so on. Strategies for the Shift, a series of panel discussions reflecting on artists’ interpretations of the political landscape in Latin America, continues in October with "Documenting the Shift" and "Artists in Conversation."
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 24. Continues through Jan. 29, 2010
