Alchemi-que? Forging Wholeness in Early Chicano Art and Identity
Join us this Sunday, October 2 at 1:00 p.m. at Avenue 50 Studio to hear a lecture by Marcos Sanchez-Tranquilino will mark the close of Los Vets, an exhibition of work by some of the many Los Angeles artists who had a hand in the formation and affirmation of the Chicano art movement. Sanchez-Tranquilino, the driving force behind the 1990 exhibition Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation (CARA), will discuss the community-based urban art practice of the artists participating in the show. They include Judy Baca, David Botello, Barbara Carrasco, Yreina Cervantez, Harry Gamboa Jr., Margaret Garcia, Wayne Healy, Judithe Hernandez, Leo Limón, Gilbert “Magu” Luján, and George Yepes. The event, which is co-sponsored by L.A. Xicano and the CSRC, is free. For more information, visit Avenue 50 Studio’s website.
