I am Alex Nieto and My Life Matters. I created this design with guidance and feedback from local community organizers. A limited edition will be printed for auction to raise funds for the Nieto family. Details to follow soon.

I'm heading to Barcelona, Spain for the Decolonizing Knowledge and Power Summer School in July. Now I have to prepare to be ready academically (I have a bunch of books & articles to read) and fundraise so I can get there because going to Europe is pretty expensive.
I am really excited about participating in this program, it will give me the opportunity to work with some awesome academics and artists whose work has been super important in Chican@ Studies and Decolonial thinking. I believe it will give me some great tools to really move my art practice forward as well as my writing and the way I approach issues Xicana people are facing in embracing an indigenous past and future.
To prepare for this I am looking to my community for help to get there by asking for financial support. The total cost for this program is $4,200, that includes tuition, room, airfair and hopefully snacks! If there is any way you are able to assist, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Un-settling Alliances is a themed portfolio organized to debut at the Southern Graphics Council’s 42nd Annual Conference: Bridges: Spanning Tradition, Innovation and Activism.
This portfolio brings together eleven artists of varied generations, backgrounds, and relationships to anti-colonialism to focus on connections and alliances across struggles for self-determination, decolonization, and collective liberation. Drawing from the work of printmakers who engage in social, political and cultural themes, this project hopes to visualize and build cross-movement relationships. The project is to debut at the 2014 SGCI conference in San Francisco this March. It will remain on view at 518 Valencia following the SGC conference.

PORTFOLIO DESCRIPTION: This body of work will focus on connections and alliances across struggles for self-determination, decolonization, and collective liberation. Drawing from the work of printmakers who come from varied backgrounds and whose works engage in social, political and cultural themes, this portfolio will reflect the artists' visualization of issues they are connected to while furthering the conference's vision and intention to perpetuate printmaking practices that nurture activism, bridge communities, and investigate the relationship between tradition and innovation.
