Event description

Description

We are excited to partner with the Boston LGBTQIA Artists Alliance (BLAA), the Harvard Ed Portal Crossings Gallery (HEP), and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) at Harvard University for BLAA’s fourteenth exhibition. This exhibition will offer a platform of self-expression for LGBTQIA Latinx artists. Often marginalized by the dominant culture even within their own communities, this show celebrates the intersectional identities of these artists, offering a space for empowerment, community, representation and visibility. This exhibition will contain several unique, distinctive voices (both conceptually and aesthetically) that also function as part of a larger collective conversation about contemporary intersectionality.

This exhibit will run from January 19th - Feburary 16th.

More about the participating organizations:

The Boston LGBTQIA Artist Alliance (BLAA) is a group committed to providing support, resources, and community to Boston-based artists. BLAA’s goal is to provide a platform for LGBTQIA artists to showcase their work; promote public awareness of BLAA’s existence and mission; offer opportunities for artists to network with each other, other arts resources, and with new audiences; and foster dialogue surrounding queerness and art. We aim to build community and act as a hub, offering support and resources for queer artists within the greater Boston community.

Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA) is a dynamic Community Development Corporation founded in 1968 in Boston’s South End. Through their Arts Program, IBA promotes and celebrates the diversity of Latino arts and culture through music, visual arts, dance and more. Housed at Villa Victoria Center for the Arts, the largest Latino arts center in New England, IBA presents concerts, festivals, exhibits and other high quality programming that is affordable accessible, and innovative.

David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) at Harvard University works to increase knowledge of the cultures, economies, histories, environment and contemporary affairs of Latin America; to foster cooperation and understanding among the peoples of the Americas; and to contribute to democracy, social progress and sustainable development throughout the hemisphere.

The Harvard Ed Portal (HEP) is a collaborative partnership involving Harvard, the Allston-Brighton community, and the City of Boston. The Ed Portal is the Allston-Brighton community’s front door to Harvard’s educational, arts, wellness, and workforce and economic development programs. The Crossings Gallery is the Harvard Ed Portal’s street-level art gallery at the intersection of Western Ave. and North Harvard St. in Allston. The gallery exhibits work from Harvard and Allston-Brighton artists for the community to enjoy. HEP has a dual mission of artistic and educational excellence and work to create an immersive and thought-provoking space for learning and collaboration. Alongside exhibitions, the gallery offers programming that allows visitors to learn from artists and engage with issues raised by the work on display.
