This symposium demonstrates how culture in general and art in particular can be used as a political tool to challenge and reimagine the place of queer communities of color in society. The works and rountable discussions demonstrate how art can be used as a survival strategy to overcome the structural oppression faced daily by gay Chicanos and other marginalized peoples. This exhibit, Rememberance, offers a rare opportunity to catalyze important dialogue on questions of oppression and social justice among the exhibiting artists and local artistic communities; gender studies, queer studies, Chicano-Latino studies scholars; and ICGC’s broader interdisciplinary global studies community.
