We are Houston is a juried exhibition of Chicano and Latinx art. Presented by Advocates of a Latino Museum of Cultural and Visual Arts & Archive Complex in Houston (ALMAAHH), The artists in We are Houston were selected by María C. Gaztambide, Executive Director and Chief Curator, Public Art of the University of Houston System, and Gilbert Vicario, Chief Curator, Perez Art Museum Miami. The works in the exhibition span diverse mediums and conceptual touchpoints that demonstrate the wealth of artistic excellence in contemporary art in Houston. Abstraction, figuration, tradition, and innovation are exemplified through 65 artworks by 33 artists living, working or originating in Greater Houston. Loosely defined themes—such as New Vernaculars; Places and Journeying; Life In-Between; Containment, Migration, Trauma; Gender, Self, Fluidity; Resiliency; Remaking and Making Do; and Earth and Cosmos—tie together this incredibly complex body of work.
