Grounded in the rasquache sensibility of survival and inventiveness, Gilbert ‘Magu’ Luján reimagined physical and cultural environments to create alternate realities. This exhibition traces the community influences that grounded Magu’s artwork as he explored a Chicano future. Developed in collaboration with the Luján family, Recuerdos del futuro showcases more than eighty works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and interview footage. The exhibition also features installations by local artists responding to Magu. Audiences are encouraged to connect with Luján and his legacy in ways that inspire creativity and authentic self-expression rooted in community experiences.
