2019-2020 Exhibitions

Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A.

Is a traveling exhibition that explores the intersections among a network of over fifty artists. This historical exhibition is the first of its kind to excavate histories of experimental art practice, collaboration, and exchange by a group of Los Angeles-based queer Chicanx artists between the late 1960s and early 1990s. While the exhibition’s heart looks at the work of Chicanx artists in Los Angeles, it reveals extensive new research into the collaborative networks that connected these artists to one another and to artists from many different communities, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and international urban centers, thus deepening and expanding narratives about the development of the Chicano Art Movement, performance art, and queer aesthetics and practices.

Featured professors include Raphael Fajardo, Meg Jackson, Deborah Howard, Mia Mulvey and Bin Ramke, and Chinn Wang.

Ghostly Traces
