The last of the Historia del Arte lecture series features Chicano Art Affirmed (c. 1985 to c. 2010)
The final presentation addresses changes in Chicano art from the 1980s through the early twenty-first century. By the 1980s, the term “Hispanic” became a term that was commonly used to describe all people who had a Spanish-speaking heritage, essentially lumping people of Mexican descent in with all other Latin Americans. In defiance, Chicano/a artists have continued to show cultural pride through their art.
This presentation will address the influence of the various artists who took part of the Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation (CARA) exhibit that toured the United States from 1990 to 1993. This particular exhibit was the first Chicano exhibit to receive national attention from the press and the first exhibit that collaborated between Chicanos and major museums across the United States. While the pieces included in this exhibit were produced during the Chicano movement era, the significance was the movement from localized movements to mainstream art.
From this point, the presentation moves into the twenty-first century addressing artists like Mario Ybarra, Jr., Chaz Bojorquez, and Yreina Cervántez among others.
