La Pulga Zine Release Party!
We’re happy to bring Arlene Mejorado’s latest zine, La Pulga, to its hometown of San Antonio TX for an official zine release, signing and discussion followed by Bruk Out celebration party! Mejorado’s photographic series, La Pulga, captures the rich and vibrant culture of San Anto’s flea market, mercados, and tiagius community. Through colorful and lively portraiture of market goers, vendors and still lives, her documents speak of people existing outside of the main stream of visual consumption and economic privilege. La Pulga brings visibility and dignity to the forefront of these communities and represents working class Latina/os that make up the beating heart of San Antonio.
As part of the event, Deep Red Press has curated a collection of vendors and creatives that represent the latino and art community in North Texas. A special selection of artisans, zine makers, creative voices, and latino entrepreneurs from NTX will participate in their very own Pulga!
**A portion of La Pulga sales will go to RAICES; a non-profit providing free and low-cost services to under-served immigrant children, families and refugees. These donations will specifically support their efforts with unaccompanied minors and detained families.**
