ESTAMOS BIEN – LA TRIENAL 20/21 is inspired by the critically acclaimed and historic The (S) Files exhibitions held at El Museo between 1999 and 2013, which provided a platform for emerging Latino and Latin American artists from the New York metropolitan region. This exhibition address issues of race and identity politics, gentrification and displacement.
