Here Now: Where We Stand celebrates the 40 th Anniversary of The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (MCCLA), founded in San Francisco in 1977 as a result of social struggles for greater equality in the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition honors this history and MCCLA’s role in providing previously under-recognized artists with an alternative space to present their work.

In recognition of this history, Here Now: Where We Stand showcases how art media, images, and texts may serve as a means of personal and social aesthetic engagement and trans-cultural communication, and as vehicles for historical and contemporary cultural discourses, aimed at an expanded redefinition of ”American” art in global dialogue.
