Narrative Shift Project
June 18, 2020, 6–9pm
SOMArts, 934 Brannan St.
Artists Gabriela Alemán, Jazmin Ontiveros, and Valeria Olguín Ontiveros are partnering with a Bay Area non profit organization to create artworks highlighting the labor, love, and sacrifice associated with combating the housing crisis and economic displacement. Opening with a free, all ages reception on June 18, 6–9pm, the project culminates with a film screening and exhibition in SOMArts’ Ramp Gallery.
As a collective, Gabriela, Valeria, and Jazmin are deeply dedicated to using their individual and collective artistic practices to highlight the experiences of Black and Brown communities. Featuring illustrations and a short film informed by community stories, their work centers the narratives of activists, tenants, and community members who organize around displacement and gentrification.
