CSRC Partners with Google Arts & Culture
For Hispanic Heritage Month 2017, the CSRC Library announced two online exhibitions produced in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, a not-for-profit initiative that collaborates with cultural organizations to make visual art accessible through a free online platform: Gronk: Speaking in Many Artistic Tones and Joteria: Documenting Queer Latinx in L.A.
The first exhibition, Gronk: Speaking in Many Artistic Tones, draws on Gronk, volume 1 of the A Ver: Revisioning Art History series from CSRC Press, to present an overview of the life and works of the L.A.-based artist. The second exhibition, and Joteria: Documenting Queer Latinx in L.A., highlights the CSRC’s LGBTQIA collections, which the CSRC began actively collecting in 2007 as part of the LGBT and Mujeres Initiative. Images in Joteria were drawn from the following archival collections: Maricon Collective, VIVA, Cyclona, Queer Nation, Gil Cuadros, Laura Aguilar, Elena Popp, Yolanda Retter-Vargas, Tatiana de la Tierra, Ramiro Gomez Jr., David Damian Figueroa, and Dan Guerrero.
