Here There, Acá Allá
Photographic dialogues between generations and cultures
Curated by Susana Arellano and Rafael Gamo
Here There, Acá Allá was possible through a collaborative effort between Mano a Mano: Mexican Culture Without Borders and Masa, with the goal of making art accessible to children in the South Bronx.
Here There, Acá Allá is an intergenerational photography workshop that brings together the first and second generations of participating Mexican-American immigrant families. The title refers to the dual experience of growing up and living between two cultures, using two languages and developing an enriched identity.
