Galeria de la Raza is pleased to present
YTREBIL, a solo exhibition featuring
prints and drawings by San Francisco
based artist, Enrique Chagoya. Born in
Mexico City in the mid-1950s, Chagoya
came to the U.S. in 1977. As a result,
his work is immersed in the contradic-
tions of "belonging" to both sides of the
border. Within the framework of his
work, "the border" refers not only to his
bi-national, bi-cultural identity, but also
to conceptual borders and the fine line
that divides colonial and post-colonial
interpretations of power.

MAPP event this APRIL 3, 2010

The Mission Arts & Performance Project is a bi-monthly collaboration between visual artists, musicians, poets and performers. The MAPP puts art and performance on the street level by using alternative spaces such as private garages, basements, and studios. It’s a block party of the arts for inspiring in ourselves, and others, the desire for a creative existence, an ever widening experience of life.

Among the venues confirmed, we have:
Red Poppy Art House
Revolution Cafe
L's Caffe
And much more!!!

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to share and enjoy the charm of Mission and their wonderful, talented artists.
It is free!!
