Latinxs in California
A Latinx Research Center Exhibition
The Latinx Research Center is pleased to inaugurate a permanent exhibition, “Latinxs in California.” A year in the making, this interdisciplinary, collaborative project brings together the contributions of artists, faculty, emeriti, community members, and undergraduate and graduate students. The exhibition draws upon the historical expertise of scholars and the research that has informed the work of the artists included.
The purpose of this exhibition is to point visually toward a broader and more complex history of California’s diverse peoples, places, and moments that might otherwise remain hidden in mainstream accounts – a history that predates the formation of the state and whose roots extend back to the Indigenous Peoples of this continent.
