Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers – Opening Night

Friday, June 7, 2024

Contemporary at Blue Star invites the public to the opening of Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers. Of Mexican-American origin, they self-identify as Xicanx, a term that crosses national borders and gender lines to encompass the Chicano people’s multi-generational experiences of social difference.

Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers was originally presented by MOA and ARENET and curated by Jill Baird, former Curator of Education, MOA; Greta de Léon, Executive Director, ARENET. The presentation at Contemporary at Blue Star has been organized in collaboration with Mary Heathcott, Executive Director Contemporary at Blue Star; Jacqueline Saragoza McGilvray, Curator and Exhibitions Director, Contemporary at Blue Star; and Jon Hinjosa, Xicanx Project Director, ARENET.

The exhibition will be accompanied by public programs and a Xicanx month symposium (August 2024).
