Remember Where You Are


This exhibition presents work by four emerging artists — Jimmy James Canales, Jenelle Esparza, Melissa Leandro, and Emilio Rojas — who use performance, sculpture, and textiles to make visible untold narratives of heritage and place, while questioning practices of exclusion and erasure.
