  • Mesa College Art Gallery Celebrates LatinX Heritage Month with, In Lak´ech: Tu eres mi otro yo, Featuring Artworks by Maria de Los Angeles and Ryan Bonilla

    September 27, 2022  |  Office of Communications

    San Diego, CA. – On Wednesday, September 28, San Diego Mesa College will hold a reception for In Lak’ech: Tu eres mi otro yo, featuring artworks by Maria de Los Angeles and Ryan Bonilla. The Reception will be held from 4:00-7:00 p.m., in the Mesa College Art Gallery (FA-103). In Lak’ech: Tu eres me otro yo (You are my other me) invokes a Mayan concept popularized by Chicano playwright Luis Valdez. This affirmation reflects a philosophy of caring and connecting with the human spirit of one another. This idea sets the tone for this two-person exhibit at the San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery to celebrate Latinx Heritage Month. Through evocative paintings, wearable dress sculptures and drawings, artist Maria de Los Angeles – a former Dreamer and community college student, who is now a Professor at Yale University - connects with America’s multiple selves: those of the immigrant, the refugee, the undocumented, the indigenous. She questions and breaks down racist stereotypes and tackles otherness and the concept of belonging. Sharing the space, Ryan Bonilla’s monotype prints and Polaroid installation titled “We are Misfits” are a celebration of alternative culture.
