Solidarity Struggle Victory Opening Reception

Friday, September 13, 2019
7:00 – 9:00 PM

Please join us on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 7:00–9:00PM for the Opening Reception of Solidary Struggle Victory, Southern Exposure's fall group show. Curated by PJ Gubatina Policarpio, this exhibition showcases six artists and one collective whose diverse practices reflect the region’s legacy of critical engagement, radical activism and the ethos of solidarity, self-determination, and emancipatory education.

Solidarity Struggle Victory commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the country’s first ever College of Ethnic Studies, established at San Francisco State College in 1969, ushering in a national movement for the transformation of higher education. Beginning in November 1968, the Black Students Union and the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF) organized a student strike joined by faculty, staff, and community members to protest systemic racism and overall disregard for the concerns of Indigenous students and students of color. 

Can't make it to the opening reception on September 13? Come see the exhibition during regular gallery hours through November 9, Tuesday - Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00pm!
