Curated by Rio Yañez and Carolina Quintanilla, Día de Los Muertos 2019: City of Souls features special altar structures to honor and manifest founding curator Rene Yañez’s vision for his final Día de Los Muertos exhibition, titled City of Souls, a reference to his 2001 exhibition City of Miracles. City of Souls invites artists who are most directly impacted by gentrification and displacement to engage audience members in dialogue on the future of San Francisco’s cultural identity.
On Thursday, October 24, 6–9pm, Thinking of You: A Día de Los Muertos Drag Show features performances by some of the Bay Area’s most celebrated queens who explore drag as altar and remembrance. Hosted by Persia, tickets are available for this cant-be-missed event are $12–15 sliding scale and can be purchased online.
