Round 11 SOEX Award Winner: DAR+LUZ Collective
Yadira Cazares, founder/lead, of DAR+LUZ Collective accepts Southern Exposure’s (SOEX) Alternative Exposure 2017 award, supporting the independent, self-organized work of artists and small groups that play a critical and significant role within the San Francisco Bay Area arts community.
Committed to serving Black and Brown artists in the Bay Area, the Dar+Luz Collective will build a mobile tricycle gallery that cruises through the Oakland communities of Fruitvale Village, Eastmont Mall, and West Oakland Point Shoreline. The collective will be showing works by local artists selected through an open call. Yadira Cazares, Avé-Ameenah Long and Alex Martinez will challenge the myth of stationary, immobile, established upper-class art institutions. Accessibility is used as a tool for community interaction by posing a series of questions to the Oakland community that will serve as a point of reference for a series of exhibitions
