When: Sat., April 7, 5 p.m. 2018
Sanchez Contemporary in downtown Oakland is one of the few art galleries that uses its space to showcase Latinx artists. The latest exhibit opening this weekend will be solely dedicated to Latinx women. The name Cultura Cura (Culture Cures) explores the multiple roles that women may inhabit, not only as wives or mothers, but also as healers, providers, and preservers of culture, passing on from generation to generation. The exhibit also explores how women provide comfort, love, and healing to their loved ones, often forgetting to take care of themselves. Twenty-seven artists will show their work, and the opening reception will feature tunes by Susana y su Orquesta Adelante.
