2019 Día de los Muertos 50+ Artists Art Exhibit | SOMArts

Now in its 20th year, SOMArts’ Día de Los Muertos exhibition is one of the most internationally diverse Day of the Dead celebrations in the United States. Día de Los Muertos at SOMArts merges traditional altars with contemporary installations, continuing to be a multigenerational gathering of remembrance while asserting the role of art as a platform for collective action.

Curated by Rio Yañez and Carolina Quintanilla, this year’s exhibition features special altar structures to honor and manifest founding curator’s Rene Yañez’ vision for his final Día de Los Muertos exhibition titled City of Souls, a reference to his 2001 exhibition City of Miracles.

The exhibition unveiling on Friday, October 11, 6 pm–9 pm, $12–$20 sliding scale admission includes curatorial remarks and musical performances by Anaís Azul and Petting Kazoo. The Día de Los Muertos artist market highlighting local Bay Area vendors rounds out the community-oriented celebration and evening of remembrance.

Día de Los Muertos 2019: City of Souls is dedicated to Dawn Mabalon, and the children who have passed away in ICE custody.
