Cuidate Mucho is a group exhibition centered on care as a life-sustaining and life-giving force. The title of the exhibition, Cuidate Mucho, translates from Spanish to English as: Take much care of yourself. It is a valediction phrase that combines both care and caution, implying a threat or harm is near. The phrase is often used to wish a loved one for a favorable outcome; for example wishing for someones safe return home. Concurrently, it is also used to hope for someone's improved health and wellbeing. As we all became accustomed to living with the corona virus, cuidate mucho was so often heard that it lost its meaning. It was during the pandemic that we became significantly aware of the power of care; caring for others, and for one's own health became essential to our survival. As we emerge from the pandemic, black and brown communities continue to be the most vulnerable. The artist in Cuidate Mucho reflect on some of the threats that affect communities of color such as mass incarceration, immigration, unfair labor practices, racism, and gender-based violence. The artists offer solutions that are centered on care, love, and tenderness.
