Guadalupe Rosales (USA b. 1980) is an artist and archivist based in Los Angeles. Rosales is the founder of Veteranas and Rucas and Map Pointz, both digital archives found on Instagram. She has exhibited at The Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn NY), Vincent Price Art Museum (Los Angeles CA) and The Philbrook Museum (Tulsa OK). She has lectured at various institutions such as UCLA, Vincent Price Art Museum, The Getty, Rio Hondo College, Slanguage, Los Angeles Public Libraries, The New Museum, New York University and The Graduate Center in New York. In 2016, Rosales took over The New Yorker’s social media for a week and was one of the top rated takeovers of the year. Her role as Artist in Residence taking over LACMA’s Instagram feed was featured in the LA Times, Artsy and Artforum. Rosales has an ongoing project developing an archive of photographs, objects and ephemera related to the 90’s Los Angeles Latinx party crew scene and Chicanx youth culture. By preserving artifacts and memorabilia, Rosales' work deconstructs and reframes marginalized histories, offering platforms of conversation and agency of self-representation.
This is Guadalupe Rosales, bringing you this website dedicated to The Southern California youth (sub)cultures and a place where you can submit your photos and share your stories. I am always looking for new content to feature on my Instagram accounts.
I am also looking for 90s party crew and rave scene memorabilia such as flyers, video footage, photos and gear so if you would like to donate to the collection please send me a message!
