Here Now: Where We Stand celebrates the 40th Anniversary of The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (MCCLA), founded in San Francisco in 1977 as a result of social struggles for greater equality in the 1960s and 1970s.
The exhibition honors this history and MCCLA’s role in providing previously marginalized artists with an alternative space to present their work.
In recognition of this history, Here Now: Where We Stand showcases how, art, media, images and texts serve as a means of personal and social aesthetic engagement and trans-cultural communication, and as vehicles for historical and contemporary cultural discourses, aimed at an expanded redefinition of “American” art in global dialogue.
