Join exhibition curator Alana Hernandez and David Avalos for a conversation on Instagram Live. A key figure in San Diego’s Chicano Art Movement, David Avalos works in sculpture, installation, and public projects. His sculptures unabashedly assert the vernacular of rasquache as a form of resilience in the face of social, racial, and economic adversity.
