All Day Art Exhibition: Ni Solo Mujeres, Intersecting Chicana Identities Artwork by ten prominent Chicana artists and one Mexican photographer will be on exhibit as part of Ni Solo Mujeres: Intersecting Chicana Identities, an exhibition
commemorating International Women's Day to be held at theSouthwestern College Art Gallery.

Exhibited in conjunction with Shoulders to Stand On: Remembering the Chicana Activist Narrative, a traveling exhibition produced by and shown at the Women's Museum of California in 2016, Ni Solo Mujeres: Intersecting Chicana Identities will present works by 10 Chicana artists from California. The all women's exhibition takes as its title Ni Solo Mujeres (Nor Just Women), in an effort to extoll intersectional identities within feminist struggles. It challenges the idea that oppressive dichotomies can only be defeated through homogenous unity and instead presents a collection of work that celebrates the diversity within Chicana identity, and the power that lies in that intersectionality.

Ni Solo Mujeres will open on Tuesday March 7th, 2017 and will be on exhibit until April 6th at the Southwestern College Art Gallery located at SWC Art Gallery/710 Building 900 Otay Lakes Road, Chula Vista,
California 91910. An opening reception will take place on March 7th from 5-8pm. Panel guests and info TBA. Admission is free
and open to the public.

Ni Solo Mujeres is curated by Leticia Gomez Franco, who also curated Shoulders to Stand On for the Women's Museum of California. She is looking forward to this new iteration of an already excellent program and looks forward to pushing the dialogue beyond Chicana nationalism, by highlighting Chicanas who are currently creating work that breaks identity boundaries. An effort that is nothing short of timely; she adds, that the artists participating are a
testament that for women of color, identity is hyphenated a million times over as women living in racialized, sexualized and always politicized gendered bodies. Each artist is living testament that in times like these, our mere existence is revolutionary, and art created from a place of consciousness becomes an ever resounding affirmation of resistance.

The list of participating artists is a first for the San Diego area. Yolanda Lopez, a San Diego native, leading feminist and pioneer of the Chicana movement is best known for her Guadalupe Series, 1978, but as a long time fixture and jewel of the Mission art scene in San Francisco continues to be at the forefront of artists responding to gentrification. Shizu Saldamando, whose work is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, and Carolyn Castaño, both Los Angeles based artists recently exhibited at the Venice Biennale. Local artists, Berenice Badillo and Patricia Aguayo have both left their mark as muralists on the pillars of the now historically designated Chicano Park. Also on the roster are San Diego based Alessandra Moctezuma, Tijuana based PANCA, Los Angeles based Angelica Becerra and Oakland based Crystal Galindo and Melanie Cervantes. Also featured is Mexican photographer Rotmi Enciso, who took the iconic protest photograph used as the inspiration for the title of this show.

4:30 PM - 6:00 PM China’s Growing Protectionism and the U.S. Response In the Fifth Annual Robert F. Ellsworth Memorial Lecture, Ambassador Charlene Barshefsky will address China's growing protectionism and how the U.S. is responding.

China's historic reform and opening has been the global economic story of our lifetimes, catapulting China's economy, fueling global growth and opening vast opportunity to foreign enterprises. But in recent years, China's economy has slowed markedly due to serious structural and social impediments, necessitating a shift in its growth model. Rather than embark upon further reform and opening as a means of recharging its economy, China has instead implemented a series of discriminatory, zero-sum policies that put foreign companies at a sharp competitive disadvantage. This approach is increasingly generating tensions with China's trading partners - raising the question of how the U.S. and the international business community should respond.
