On The Wall is a dynamic exhibition comprised of both Latino and
Asian Pacific Islander emerging artists.
Through the mediums of spray paint,
installation and video,the featured artists examine the current issues of
the immigration debate, such as shifting identities, cultural ownership and
community building.
On The Wall is the last exhibition of the year-long
series, PICTURING IMMIGRATION,which included exhibitions and public
events examining immigration from a variety of perspectives.


The exhibition will feature a large-scale installation and public billboard
by the Trust Your Struggle collective, a group of visual artists and
educators, based in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.
The group
is dedicated to social justice through art and works in conjunction with
several other collectives, producing engaging exhibits and community events.

This presentation at Galería culminates the 2008 Trust Your Hustle Mural
Tour, which started in July in Brooklyn, New York and has traveled until now
through Atlanta, New Orleans, Austin, Flagstaff,Phoenix, and Los Angeles.


For the exhibit at Galería de la Raza,the Trust Your Struggle group will
join forces with multi talented video artists selected by Kearny St.

Workshop, creating a vibrant venue of art, thought, and
cross-cultural community activism.


Kearny Street Workshop’s video artists include: Tanuj Chopra, Tze
Chun,Amber Field, Pia Infante & Stephanie Yang,who thoughtfully explore
questions of identity,race and class relations, and generation gaps in
modern day society where cultures are continually informed by one another.

I found your blog after researching the statement "Trust your struggle" on google. I think you guys did a piece down the street from my house at Krog tunnel - and I wanted to share with you how it inspired me to think about improving my life. Thanks for doing such good work in Atlanta.

I pass by a van that has Mona on the back & Trust Your Struggle every morning on my way to work. So today I thought i'd drop in and check what it was about.

Thanks, I am making arrangements to come to your show soon.
