Fuerza: A Collaborative Student Exhibit
As a final celebration of Women’s History month and in connection with the NHCC’s current exhibition “Qué Chola,” high school students across the Albuquerque area were invited to submit visual work they had created. Artists were asked to think critically and broadly while examining the experiences of women and the role of gender identity in today’s society. The works in this exhibition celebrate feminine strength, resilience, and empowerment through an intersectional lens, examining gender identity alongside race, ethnicity, class, age, etc. Reflected in the students’ work are deep explorations of identity and what that means to these students.
