WHEN: Saturday, March 19, 2016
TIME: 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
WHERE: Centro Cultural de la Raza (www.centroculturaldelaraza.com)
The exhibition is being organized by the artist collective Mujeres de Maiz Fronterizas based out of the San Diego / Tijuana border region. The collective, which seeks to empower women of color through mentorship, art, culture, activism and leadership opportunities is excited to be creating a safe-space for women to celebrate themselves and each other, and stated the following about the upcoming show: “In the "Power of Feminine Energy” Mujeres de Maíz Fronterizas aims to highlight work by women from all walks of life and all levels of training. We open the space to both emerging and established artists to give self-identified women and girls the opportunity to tell their stories through art. The theme asks women to challenge misrepresentations of femininity as “weak” and to convey instead how the power of feminine energy challenges patriarchy, oppression and other forms of gender violence. Because women’s stories are often excluded from mainstream platforms, and are especially underrepresented in the art world, we hope that this exhibit contributes towards creating more opportunities for women’s voices to be heard.”
The Power of Feminine Energy will feature over 100 works in various mediums and will open on Saturday March 19th 2016 at the Centro Cultural de la Raza- located at 2004 Park Boulevard San Diego, CA 92101. The opening reception will run from 6-10pm. While the art exhibition is definitely the highlight, the night also includes a “noche de cultura” featuring live music by DJ Miki Vale, as well as a very special performance by Bomba Liberte, and other local performances. The exhibition will be up through April 3rd 2016.
