Our third honoree this year is Gudalupe Rosales!
Guadalupe Rosales is an artist and archivist based in Los Angeles. She holds an MFA from The School of The Art Institute Of Chicago. Rosales is the founder of Veteranas and Rucas and Map Pointz, both digital archives found on Instagram. She has exhibited at The Vincent Price Art Museum (Los Angeles CA), Bemis Art Center (Omaha Nebraska), MOCA Miami and Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles CA). She has lectured at various institutions such as UCLA, The Getty, The New Museum, New York University, MOCA and The Graduate Center in New York. In 2016, Rosales took over The New Yorker’s social media for a week and was one of the top rated takeovers of the year. Her role as Artist in Residence taking over LACMA’s Instagram feed was featured in the LA Times, Artsy and Artforum. Rosales has an ongoing project developing an archive of photographs, objects and ephemera related to the 90’s Los Angeles Latinx party crew scene and Chicanx youth culture. By preserving artifacts and memorabilia, Rosales' work deconstructs and reframes marginalized histories, offering platforms of conversation and agency of self-representation.
