Map Pointz

2015—ongoing


“Veteranas and Rucas” and “Map Pointz” manifested on Instagram in 2015 from the under/misrepresentation and historical erasure of Latinx communities in Southern California. These community-generated projects begin with an open invitation to various Latino communities to share personal images and memories that create visual narratives that celebrate identities and historicize subcultures. The archives explore ideas about how history and culture are framed and who does the framing.  As a counterpoint, the archive celebrates, humanizes and reflects the positive and honest attributes of our shared culture. It creates a space for collective healing and storytelling and finds ways for new dialogue to emerge about youth culture in Southern California that would not exist otherwise.
