JOTERÍA : Documenting Queer Latinx in LA
This online exhibit illustrates the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center's continuing efforts to acquire and create collections de la jotería, a.k.a. Latinx LGBTQIA+ (an umbrella term used to intentionally include and give visibility to the queer, intersex and a-sexual communities, along with those not included in the acronym).
In addition to featuring portable murals, easel paintings, photographs, prints, books, and broadsheets, the exhibition displays murals by the Tres Grandes (Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros) in digital form. View the slideshows at the link above.
Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945 Feb 17, 2020–Jan 31, 2021
With nearly 200 works by over sixty Mexican and American artists, this exhibition reorients art history by revealing the profound impact the Mexican muralists had on their counterparts in the United States during this period and the ways in which their example inspired American artists both to create epic narratives about American history and everyday life and to use their art to protest economic, social, and racial injustices.
