In Outer Space celebrates Galería de la Raza’s cultural legacy witnessed at the historic 24th Street site. For 48 years, Galería’s home was our “Mother Board” a place of infinite creativity where risk taking cultural endeavors formed new frontiers and defined Xicanx/Latinx aesthetics locally, nationally and abroad. Astrophysicist believe that the universe is a held together by a substance known as “dark matter” – it cannot be seen and yet it comprises the majority of the universe. This exhibition is a cultural time capsule that offers a study of what we call our “dark matter” – the stu that has held and defined Galería’s community. Featured in this cultural capsule include works from our archive and represents the magic, ritual and reclaiming of historical memory.
