Speckled halftone background text says Puerto Rico and the Bay Area: A Cuir / Queer Conversation

Aquí estamos / here we are artists and collaborators join curator, Juan Carlos Rodríguez Rivera, for a live online conversation. How do we imagine collective futures from a domestic space? What privileges does that entail? How have shelter-in-place and lockdowns affected each individual artists’ practice?

An online exhibition paired with intimate artist talks that launch every Wednesday in June and weekly Instagram takeovers by featured artists. This work is an act of collective solidarity, regeneration, and celebration between queer artists from the Bay Area and Puerto Rico redefining the domestic space.
