Qué Chola

March 8August 4

The Chola is a significant figure in the Latina imagination for the ways that she represents a feminine strength, power, and resilience in the face of racial, gender, and economic adversity. She is a figure that many young Latinas in the U.S. admire and emulate. The last few years have seen a surge in interest in the Chola as a figure and this exhibition will explore this dynamic from a feminist perspective through art and popular culture.

The Qué Chola Photo Board will be displayed in the exhibition and is an opportunity to honor the Cholas in our lives, past and present, by sharing photos of homegirls showing off their style and pride.

If you have a photo you’d like included on the photo board you can send them to us. And if you send them before March 8, they will be part of the Qué Chola! opening reception. For more information on how to share, click here.
