Join us for the opening reception of our two-person show in Berkeley this Friday! Friday, April 3rd at the Pueblo Nuevo Gallery in Berkeley, CA. This exhibit will feature some of the most recent work Melanie and Jesus have created in partnership with grassroots organizing efforts on issues such as ending State violence like ICE raids and police brutality, efforts for decolonizing education through access to Ethnic Studies and prints celebrating the ongoing resistance to Neoliberalism by the Zapatistas.
“Dignidad Rebelde is a project created by activist-artists Jesus Barraza and Melanie Cervantes. It acts as a space for collaboration and artistic skill-sharing that is grounded in a Xicana worldview and is fueled by a collective desire to support grassroots organizing and social justice. Working through a print collective in Oakland, Barraza and Cervantes are committed to producing and distributing screen printed political posters and fostering resurgence in the screen printing medium for social change.”
