Notice: The ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art outgrew being hosted on the Langelle Photography web page. We have a new site dedicated only to the gallery. We “officially” launched the site on 1 June 2016: ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art

The ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art was founded to utilize art and photography to present an historical look at movements for change, struggle and everyday life. It is designed to counter the societal amnesia from which we collectively suffer—especially with regard to the history of social and ecological movements and issues, and to inspire new generations to participate in the making of a better world.

The name of the gallery, ¡Buen Vivir!, is a concept stemming from Indigenous and other cultures of the Southern Americas. ¡Buen vivir! means life in harmony between humans, communities, and the Earth–where work is not a job to make others wealthier, but for a livelihood that is sustaining, fulfilling, and in tune with the common good.
