Images on which to build, 1970s-1990s features selected works from the photographic archive of Mexicana-Chicana activist, artist, and educator Diana Solís (b. 1956). In the second of two conversations between Goldberg and a photographer featured in the exhibition, Solís will speak about the range of their photographic work from the late 1970s to the 1990s across Chicago and Mexico City, where they participated in overlapping anti-imperialist, Chicana/o/x, feminist, and queer liberation struggles. Over these years, Solís worked as a photojournalist and built numerous educational programs in grassroots feminist organizations. In the late 1990s, they began working in illustration, murals, and large-scale public art. In recent years, Solís returned to documentary photography and portraiture featuring their queer and Latinx communities in Pilsen, Chicago, which has recently been featured in a monograph, Luz, Seeing the Space Between Us.
