LOS ANGELES — The Beta Main’s current resident artist, Star Montana, moderated a wonderful Saturday afternoon panel discussion. “How We Do It” brought together women creatives Valerie Bower, Arlene Mejorado, and Desilu Munoz who all share a love for zines, and the need to document their lives through the still image.
The parallels you see in their work all gravitate to hometown pride, families, and friends. These subjects dominate the forefront of their works, giving visibility to those not often represented, sans exploitation.
It was empowering to see mujeres like myself, and I’d like to thank Star Montana, and the Main Museum for bringing together a panel that was well deserved, greatly needed, and entirely appreciated.
