Resistance: Origin and Gender in the Zapatista Movement Photo Exhibition

Resistance: Origin and Gender in the Zapatista Movement Photo Exhibition

Presented by Latinas Unidas Por El Arte (LUPE Arte) at Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.

Ms. Reynoso has built an extensive body of work chronicling the Zapatista uprising that emerged in Chiapas, Mexico, from its beginnings in 1994 to the present day. The photographs in this collection documents some of the most relevant events in the Zapatista movement’s history, captured glimpses into the daily lives of women in Zapatista communities, and gathered intimate portraits of their supporters. The prominence of women in the Zapatista Army for National Liberation (EZLN) is unquestionable – from its origins in the state of Chiapas, Mexico, to the present day. The Compañeras have been a fundamental part of the organizational efforts within their indigenous communities of Chiapas.

This show is a tribute to the Mexican woman: fighter, brave, and indispensable in any fight for the vindication of their rights.

The opening reception is on Friday, June 21st from 6 – 8 PM and the exhibit will be on display until July 27, 2019.
