Highlighting the artistic contribution that Los Angeles-based Chicana/o artists made to American art, this exhibition, consisting of 51 artworks by 31 artists, investigates how Chicana/o artists in the wake of the Chicano Moratorium adapted new modes of image-making and self-expression borrowed from the expanding media culture of the 1960s to create a pivotal genre of art that broke barriers to tell their stories through various media. The exhibition is organized by AltaMed and LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, and guest curated by Rafael Barrientos Martínez, AltaMed Curatorial Assistant, Collections.
