Guest curated by Tatiane Schilaro Santa Rosa, YLA 24 brings together the works of eleven Latino/a/x artists to explore the theme of buen vivir or good living, The presenting artwork reflects the notion of decolonizing Western worldviews by tackling issues such as climate change, the legacies of colonization, immigration, and racism.
