We Run Things, Things Don’t Run We celebrates Slanguage Studio's 20 years of history. Founded by Mario Ybarra Jr. and Karla Diaz, Slanguage Studio opened its doors to the community of Wilmington, California as an artist-run space. Slanguage has since expanded its creative teachings, aspirations, and community engagement globally to creatives, innovators, and teachers of all backgrounds. This exhibition is composed of 20 artists who have grown individually in their practices through mentorship and co-creation. Many of the artists have contributed to the development of Slanguage as the De Facto Art School it is today, inspiring folx to engage and impact different communities, identities, and generations with the pedagogy of Slanguage. We Run Things, Things Don’t Run We is an homage and oeuvre of many generations that have contributed to the history, community-centric values, conscious intent/content, and intergenerational, alternative learning space of Slanguage Studio.
