Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement

Curators

Rita Gonzalez, Howard N. Fox, and Chon A. Noriega

Description

Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement was the first comprehensive consideration of Chicano art in almost two decades and the largest exhibition of cutting-edge Chicano art ever presented. The exhibition explored the experimental tendencies within current Chicano art, which is oriented less toward painting and polemical assertion and more toward conceptual art, performance, film, photography, and media-based art, as well as “stealthy” artistic interventions in urban spaces. An exhibition catalog by co-curators Rita Gonzalez, Howard N. Fox, and Chon A. Noriega is available from the University of California Press. It contains three essays that explore the topic in depth as well as more than two hundred color illustrations, twenty-five individual artist portfolios, and a wryly subversive chronology of significant moments in Chicano cultural history. The exhibition, which opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in April 2008, traveled in the United States and Mexico through June 2010.
