Electric Machete Studios (EMS) is a collective of Chicanx/Latinx/Indigenous artists. We have been committed artists working in Minneapolis and St. Paul for years. In September 2015, we opened a flexible white box gallery space on the West Side in St. Paul. We feature contemporary and experimental work rooted in traditional Latin@ and Indigenous art methods. We believe that educating others on traditional art forms is critical for the survival of Chicanx/Latinx/Indigenous histories and cultures. Intergenerational workshops, community art happenings (improvised performance events), and art exhibits serve as the foundation for highlighting social justice issues within our communities. Our work seeks to intervene in cultural displacement and racial inequities by offering alternative spaces, counter narratives, and community building opportunities for Chicanx/Latinx/Indigenous people in the Twin Cities.
