afroLAtinidad: mi casa, my city

February 22, 2020 – Ongoing

LA Plaza explores the history and contemporary experiences of Afrolatinidad in Los Angeles through art, photographs, and personal objects in “afroLAtinidad: mi casa, my city.” In the exhibition, visitors enter a recreated Afro-Latinx home and understand how this vibrant yet underrepresented community is central to Los Angeles culture. The first of its kind in a major institution, this exhibition is co-curated by Walter Thompson-Hernández and Mariah Berlanga-Shevchuk and funded by California Humanities. Opening during Black History Month, “afroLAtinidad: mi casa, my city” is presented in conjunction with “Sula Bermúdez: Neither Fish, Flesh, nor Fowl,” curated by Mar Hollingsworth, Visual Arts Curator and Program Manager, at the California African American Museum.
