This catalog accompanies an eponymous exhibition that opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and will travel to Mexico City, New York City, and Houston over the next two years. As the exhibition's curators-Gonzalez and Howard N. Fox, both with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Chon A. Noriega (director, Chicano Studies Research Ctr., Univ. of California)-explain in the introduction, this is a compilation of work by "Mexican American artists who have come to artistic maturity in the 1990s and beyond." The first section includes more than 200 color images of works by 25 individual artists as well as academic essays by the three curators addressing such subjects as the term Chicano, the scope and meaning of Chicano art, art in public spaces, art found in the urban landscape, and the invisible Chicano culture in mainstream America. The second section devotes to each artist a work statement, three to four images, and biographical information. Recommended for public and academic libraries with art and/or Chicano studies collections.
