Join us and some of the artists in the exhibition in celebrating the closing of our exhibition and residency at Loisaida Center. 

Atomic Culture is the joint cultural productions between Matthew Galindo and Malinda Galindo. Whose mission is to become a temporary geopolitical idea-space where people from all backgrounds are encouraged to learn, create, and experience art in it’s myriad forms.

Loisaida’s artistic residency provides a home to develop and explore cultural work that affirms a Latinx provocative spirit to impact local and broader cultural thinking through learning as it promotes diversity, equity, solidarity and community building that strengthens Loisaida and connects it, beyond its borders and limitations, to the broader global community.

Atomic Culture’s dynamic residency projects will encourage active participation by creating art-focused social and cultural programs accessible to everyone. Their opening exhibit titled; Futura Ahora // Future Now will map examples of Latinx arts and cultural practices from Southwest and New York based artists that integrate historical events and traditions to examine how futurism can be used as a decolonizing tool to reclaim land, natural resources, and ways of living that occupying forces have sought to wipe out.

Atomic Culture aims to improve the outlook of our cities by creating art-focused social and cultural programs accessible to everyone, while providing an experiential learning center where artists can create and interact with the next generation of creators and the community at large.


(1) Future Now // Futura Ahora calls to attention the movement of artists reclaiming and reconfiguring their cultural disposition and narratives with society at large. Through sound, installation, literature, and visual arts each artist presents compelling possibilities for the future by embracing and reclaiming their histories, traditions, and present-day experiences.
