About the event

Heart  expanding, soul charged performance art by Andreína Maldonado and José  Lobo. Celebrating the run of Art/Act: Local "This Land"

About this event

Join us for  a breathtaking, interactive performance art piece by Andreína Maldonado aka Nina Limón and José Lobo! Celebrate the last day of Art/Act: Local "This Land," an art exhibit exploring our intrinsic connections to land.

Andreína  imbues her performance with her multihyphenate background: Venezuelan  multidisciplinary performing artist, cultural worker, entrepreneur, and  registered Integral Yoga teacher. She is based in Yelamu, Ohlone  Territory, colonially known as San Francisco.

Her performance is  backed by José Lobo's cinematic, ethereal storytelling—connecting vocal  harmonies, audio interwoven from the gallery's own video pieces, and  drones blending Nordic landscapes with the infiniteness of Venezuelan  prairies and tonadas.

A recipient of the "Artists in Communities"  and "Individual Artist" grants from the San Francisco Arts Commission,  California Arts Council, National Association for Latino Arts&  Culture (NALAC), and Marin Headlands Center for the Arts, Andreína works  with domestic  laborers in public art projects, placing them at the  forefront of organizing efforts, and shifting dominant narratives about  labor.

LAST CHANCE ART VIEWING

Alicia Escott, Dominick Porras, Nicole Irene Anderson, and Sherry Xiang  expand your understanding of what our intrinsic connections to the  land entails—from the ecological to the sacred. From sweeping landscapes  to interactive petroglpyhs to live plants that sing and model  collaborative communities, "This Land" will bring you back to what's essential.

Art/Act: Local  is the midyear exhibition of our annual series that serves the  lifecycle of artists—from Art/Act: Youth in the spring to accomplished  professionals (Art/Act: Award) in the fall. We aim to nurture meaningful  relationships with a juried selection of Northern California emerging  artists grappling with 2022's theme:

“What does it mean to  be connected to the land that holds us and life on this planet, along  with the imperative to protect it?”—José González
