SCREEN: MAP POINTZ is the first public presentation of a set of video works from artist Guadalupe Rosales’ Map Pointz archive. The Map Pointz archive contains rich imagery of 90’s raves and party crews from across Southern California.
Guadalupe Rosales (USA b. 1980) is an artist based in Los Angeles. Rosales creates counter-narratives, telling the stories of communities often underrepresented in official records and popular media by building archives of vernacular photographs and ephemera connected to Latino/a culture in Southern California. Her projects exist as both collections of physical objects, and crowd-sourced digital archives; assembled on her widely followed Instagram accounts Veteranas & Rucas and Map Pointz. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Aperture Foundation, New York; The Vincent Price Art Museum, Monterey Park; Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Spazio Maiocchi, Milan; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. Her work has been written about in The Los Angeles Times, ARTNEWS, and Artforum. She has lectured at numerous museums and academic institutions, including East Los Angeles College, Los Angeles; Yale University, New Haven; the University of California, Los Angeles; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; New Museum, New York; New York University, New York; and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, New York.
