Current Exhibitions at the Harvard Ed Portal

Marca X exhibit

Marca X: January 11-February 15  
Reception: January 11, 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Marca X is a collaborative exhibition organized by the Boston LGBTQIA Artists Alliance, the Harvard Ed Portal, Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción, and the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University. This exhibition offers a platform of self-expression for LGBTQIA Latinx artists, who are often marginalized by the dominant culture and within their own communities, and celebrates their identities by offering a space for empowerment, community, representation, and visibility. The work on view reflects several distinctive voices (both conceptually and aesthetically) that also function as part of a larger collective conversation about contemporary intersectionality.
