Ghetto Gloss | The Chicana Avant-Garde, 1980-2010
Bermudez Projects, NELA/Cypress Park
On view November 11 – December 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 11, 7 – 10PM
As part of the Participating Galleries Program of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative.
This exhibit examines artworks produced by women artists post the Chicano Art Movement and the groundbreaking collectives such as Los Four and ASCO. Inspired by the radical changes of the 1980s, the grunge era of the 1990s, and the new millennium, this new wave of Chicana artists introduced remarkable artistic philosophies and methodologies that went beyond the preoccupations of social change into the art historical canon. The exhibition will include over 20 artworks, including paintings, photography, mixed-media sculpture, drawings, video, and installation.
