Event Description

Curated by Christina Sanchez and Cayetano Juarez for the William Grant Still Arts Center, Tequio Aqui, Tequio Alla brings together artists who are involved in sustaining or examining the Oaxacan practice of tequio in a post-migration urban context. The exhibition examines how this internalized tradition of service manifests itself in the civic, familial, and cultural lives of Oaxacan migrants. 

A tequio is a call to a pueblo to perform communal work for a mutual benefit; it is essentially a mandatory community service project that asks residents to contribute their labor free of charge. When Oaxacans in Los Angeles speak about these exercises in mutual aid they often describe something that goes far beyond supporting infrastructure projects in their hometowns. Instead, they are describing a way of life which is dedicated to ensuring the survival of their traditions and spiritual customs. The artists represented in this exhibition have all participated in various manifestations of tequio in their respective communities.
