Welcome!

NEPANTLA is the concept behind a collection of temporary art installations that focus on recapturing the history, culture and heritage of the latinX/hispanic communities within East Austin. The exhibit consists of 5 art installations, each by a different artist/designer who’ve been encouraged to use their preferred medium while following the overall theme of Nepantla.

Nepantla is a náhuatl term that represents the concept of in-between or a reference to the space of the middle. Nepantla can also describe individuals or groups who are today in conflict with a larger, perhaps more globally reaching culture or ideology. Nepantla has also been identified as a tool for political change. Individuals who live within two different “worlds” or “cultures” can act as “fulcrum” to engage in political change.
