The art and activism of Xicanx creators is the showcase of the current exhibit Xicanx: Dreamers and Changemakers.

One Tyee reader will win tickets to the exhibit, plus a $20 gift card to the MOA Shop. The exhibit is on display at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC until the end of the year.

The 33 artists in the exhibition are of Mexican American heritage — self-identified as Xicanx. Xicanx artists, working across all mediums, are part of a rich tradition of combining visual art and activism. Some began their work as part of El Movimiento, the Chicano civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s that had its roots in the United States. Their fight for social justice began generations ago and continues to this day.
