Judithe Hernández and Patssi Valdez: One Path Two Journeys

Within a culture, a socio-political movement and a profession dominated by men, artists Judithe Hernández and Patssi Valdez have each created bodies of works that influenced voices of Latinas in the latter half of the 20th century. The two artists took seemingly parallel paths from their childhoods in East L.A. to their coming-of-age during the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in the 1970s. Hernández was the fifth artist, and the only woman, invited to join the collective Los Four, and Valdez…

Cuba Is

Revealing complexities on–and off–the island, Cuba Is explores aspects of Cuba not easily accessed by foreigners–and sometimes not even by Cubans themselves. Born from indigenous, African and European roots, divergent politics and limitations in communication and commerce, the Cuba seen in this exhibition goes beyond the folklore and offers new insight into its current reality. Over 120 photos feature subjects ranging from defiant youth known as “Freakies” to the hard-partying children of the 1%, the underground system of sharing digital…
