The Department of Department of Latina/Latino Studies has been busy this summer creating a performance/art gallery on the first floor of their building.

Please join them in revealing La Estación Gallery to the public on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, between 5:30-7:30pm. Their first exhibition will showcase the performance artist Erica Gressman in Limbs, Ligaments, Parts: My Body is There. In this solo exhibition of queer Latinx art, the gallery covers almost a decade of Gressman's work--photography, musical scores, videos, and installations! So come celebrate with them on September 12th and get a tour of some fascinating art that moves us from the human into the posthuman from the very artist herself.
