Thalia Gotchez in the Ramp Gallery
June 26–July 31, 2018
SOMArts, 934 Brannan Street
Hermanas de Sangre explores the sacred and intimate moments of Chiyó and Naomi’s childhood growing up in the Mission district of San Francisco. It showcases not only the deep love and emotional tie they have with each other but with a neighborhood that is rapidly changing due to gentrification. It focuses on reclaiming space through their unbreakable bond as a form of resistance.
Hermanas de Sangre advocates for youth development – 100% of the proceeds will go to Mission Girls, a nonprofit program that provides various recreational, diversion, prevention, and intervention tools to young girls.
