Calli: The Art of Xicanx Peoples

Opens June 14 | Great Hall

Through photography, sculpture, painting, installation, poetry, and more, Calli: The Art of Xicanx Peoples navigates the interwoven threads of intergenerational, feminist, queer, and Xicanx-Indigenous stories that offer ancestral forms of liberation, healing, and being. 

Calli layers multiple artistic perspectives, featuring posters from late queer Chicana activist and professor Margaret “Margie” Terrazas Santos’ collection in conversation with contemporary works by Xicanx artists using a variety of mediums, from which we can imagine new possibilities for the future.

This exhibition opens June 14, 2024. Though Calli will be open to the public starting Friday, June 14, 2024, the exhibition will be closed to the general public from 3 pm–5 pm for a private viewing for contributing artists and their guests. The exhibition will be reopened to the public for OMCA’s Friday late-night gallery access starting at 5 pm until 9 pm.
