Linda Vallejo will exhibit selections from Make ‘Em All Mexican, The Brown Oscars, and The Brown Dot Project at bG Gallery as part of the Getty Foundation Initiative: Pacific Standard Time (PST) LA/LA.

Vallejo thus converts airy demographics into visual signifiers whose power is a good deal more visceral. The conversion of data of any sort into an aesthetic experience is fanciful enough; but when the data being converted is loaded with meaning – and the meaning itself is loaded with a whole different, volatile aura of meaning – the artworks that result pack an invisible wallop… If not as a tool for change, then at least as an examination of the factors that necessitate such change, a passionate argument guided not only by reason, but by humor, craft, and beauty.”

-Peter Frank, art critic and curator
