Artistic and community voices from the past, present, and future will come together for this year’s Días de los Muertos exhibition and related programs, marking two decades of the Oakland Museum of California’s commitment to uniting Bay Area communities around healing and remembrance. Highlighting contributions from pioneers of Días de los Muertos celebrations in the Bay Area and newer voices that continue to evolve this living tradition, the exhibition will include works from Jose Guadalupe Posada, Carmen Lomas Garza, Patssi Valdez, and Jesse Hernandez, among others. Co-curated by OMCA Senior Experience Developer Evelyn Orantes and Guest Curator Bea Carrillo-Hocker, Songs and Sorrows, the 20th anniversary of the exhibition at OMCA, will explore the tradition from its pre-Hispanic origins to its present expressions in California. Pre-Hispanic funerary artifacts, Mexican folk art, contemporary art, and installations will convey the iconic imagery and the aesthetic and spiritual qualities of this festival.
