Espejismo/Cicatriz (Mirage/Scar): New Works by Ernesto Yerena Montejano

July 1 2016 - February 21 2017

LA Plaza's newest exhibtion, Espejismo//Cicatriz (Mirage/Scar): New Works from Ernesto Yerena, is an attempt to continue a conversation within the Latino/Chicano/Hispanic/Mexican American/Mexican community in Los Angeles about the roots of our identities and the reasons why we may choose one of these labels over the other. What do you gain as a Hispanic or lose as a Chicano? What does each label reveal about our relationship to mestizaje? LA Plaza and artist Ernesto Yerena invite you to delve into this messy topic with humor and an open mind.
