About the event

In "Room to Grow", curators Tomás Montoya and Manuel Fernando Rios, embark on a visual narrative that unveils the profound transformation of modern Chicana/o art. Rooted in the socio-political civil rights movement of the 1960’s, Chicano art emerged as a potent force for cultural expression, indigenous reawakening, and political activism. Over time, this rebellious artistic movement has evolved to encompass a diverse variety of styles, themes, and voices, that continually build on the socio-political and cultural foundations of the Chicano Movement.

This exhibition serves as a testament to the multifaceted nature of Chicana/o art, showcasing how it has expanded its initial context to become a rich tapestry of contemporary social, political and cultural expression. The artists featured in "Room to Grow" employ an array of mediums and techniques, drawing inspiration from their cultural heritage while pushing the boundaries of traditional forms. The artworks on display reflect the ongoing dialogue between tradition and innovation within the Chicano artistic landscape. "Room to Grow" invites viewers to witness the ever-expanding boundaries of Chicana/o art and engage with the diverse narratives that continue to shape this vibrant and evolving cultural movement
