Otra Mas': 40 Years of Carnival in SF

Museum of the African Diaspora

This photography exhibition honors the long legacy of Carnaval San Francisco and its 40th annual celebration in 2018. Photographs of the parade on February 25, 1979 mark the first occasion of this tradition in San Francisco. Organized around Precita Park by Adela Chu and many others, Carnaval is inspired by multiple carnival practices around the world. Influences from Brazil, Panama, Cuba and Trinidad bring together global traditions of dancing, masquerade, and drumming as the parade continues today.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Otra Mas': 40 Years of Carnival in SF :

This vibrant photography exhibition celebrates the legacy of Carnaval San Francisco and its forthcoming 40th anniversary in 2018. With images dating from the first celebration in 1979, this cultural event draws on traditions from Brazil, Panama, Cuba, Trinidad and more, and includes dancing, masquerade and drumming. A perfect primer for spring.
