Exhibition Dates: January 12 – March 20
Event Location: UCLA CSRC Library – 144 Haines Hall
Make ’Em All Mexican: Works by Linda Vallejo at the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center features selections from the Los Angeles-based artist’s acclaimed Make ’Em All Mexican series, plus excerpts from critical essays, publications that feature the series, and objects from a portfolio by Vallejo in the CSRC’s special collections. The Make ’Em All Mexican series uses humor and irony to question whether race, color, and class define our status in the world.
Since 1969, UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research on the Chicano-Latino population, which is now the largest minority group and the fastest growing population in the United States. Their research mission is supported by five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public programs and community-based partnerships, and a competitive grant and fellowship program.
