Richmond, CA: Richmond Art Center is pleased to announce the first major survey of Andrés Cisneros-Galindo’s work, Nahui Ollin, has been extended through November 16.

The exhibition’s curator Roberto Martinez says, “We are happy to lengthen the run of this exhibition – it will give the community an extended opportunity to learn about the life and artistic trajectory of influential Bay Area artist Andrés Cisneros-Galindo whose work spans over 50 years and has helped move forward grassroots community efforts for self-determination, education, and cultural expression.”

Nahui Ollin offers an intimate perspective into Cisneros-Galindo’s experiences as a Mexican immigrant, activist, educator and artist. From the political posters that helped mobilize the Bay Area’s Chicano community to the abstract expressionist paintings that embody fragments and cultural vestiges of the immigrant identity, this exhibition highlights how Cisneros-Galindo’s practice has always been integrated in contemporary struggles around race, education, the environment, justice and democracy both in the U.S. and in Mexico. 

In conjunction with the exhibition, the artist will be presenting a hands-on print workshop at Fall Family Day on Saturday, October 7 from 12pm to 3pm. The free, all ages event is an opportunity to meet the artist and learn about his unique printing techniques. 

Nahui Ollin and Fall Family Day are free, open to all and no rsvp is necessary. Richmond Art Center is located at 2540 Barrett Avenue in Richmond.
