Overview


Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement is the first comprehensive consideration of Chicano art in almost two decades and the largest exhibition of cutting-edge Chicano art ever presented at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Traditionally described as work created by Americans of Mexican descent, Chicano art first emerged during the vibrant Chicano rights movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. This catalog and exhibition explore the experimental tendencies within today's Chicano art, which is oriented less toward painting and polemical assertion and more toward conceptual art, performance, film, photography, and media-based art, as well as "stealthy" artistic interventions in urban spaces. Three essays by Rita Gonzalez, Howard N. Fox, and Chon A. Noriega explore the topic in depth. With more than two hundred color illustrations, twenty-five individual artist portfolios, and a wryly subversive chronology of significant moments in Chicano cultural history, Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement charts new territory and provides a conceptual sampling of Chicano art today.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

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.
