MCCLA’s Gallery Department is seeking curatorial proposals for this upcoming Solo Mujeres show, and welcome any scope of proposals. In commemoration of International Women’s Day the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts is looking forward to our 30th Solo Mujeres exhibition. The exhibit was originally organized to address the need for a venue Latina artists in the Bay Area could express the achievements made in a male dominated art scene. It has since continued to support the advancement of women artists promoting women’s voice within the arts.
Solo Mujeres has drawn artists throughout California and beyond providing a space where emerging and mid-career artists receive exposure in the artistic market both vital elements in the art world. Past shows have displayed traditional work as well as contemporary media such as installation and video.
MCCLA has a marvelous history working towards the promotion of Latino/Chicano/a art & culture, but also welcome any artists that are non-Latino/a. Be a part of our history by contributing your artistic vision.
MCCLA is open for the following: Open call for curatorial project for 30th annual “Solo Mujeres” Exhibition in Main Gallery. For more information click here.
