Guadalupe Rosales is an artist and archivist based in Los Angeles. Rosales is the founder of Veteranas and Rucas and Map Pointz, both digital archives found on Instagram. She has lectured at various institutions such as UCLA, The New Museum, The New York University, and The Graduate Center in New York. Last year, Rosales took over The New Yorker’s social media for a week and was one of the top rated takeovers of the year. Her role as Artist in Residence taking over LACMA’s Instagram feed was featured in the LA Times, Artsy and Artforum. Rosales has an ongoing project developing an archive of photographs, objects and ephemera related to the ’90s Los Angeles Latinx party crew scene and Chicanx youth culture. By preserving artifacts and memorabilia, Rosales’ work deconstructs and reframes marginalized histories, offering platforms of conversation and agency of self-representation.
