Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895511452, Hardcover)

Best Arts Book - English from the 2012 International Latino Book Awards

L.A. Xicano accompanies four interrelated exhibitions that explore the diverse artistic contributions of Mexican American and Chicano artists to American art and to Los Angeles's artistic development since 1945. The volume's six illustrated essays examine the life and works of dozens of artists and photographers. The authors consider the context of their turbulent history, particularly the development of the Chicano Movement.

The L.A. Xicano project was organized by the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center in collaboration with the Autry National Center, the Fowler Museum at UCLA, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Chon A. Noriega is director of the Chicano Studies Research Center and professor in the Department of Film, Television, and Digital Media at the University of California, Los Angeles. Terezita Roma and Pilar Tompkins Rivas are independent curators as well as art project coordinators at the Chicano Studies Research Center. Other contributors include Karen Mary Davalos, Reina Alejandra Prado Saldivar, Sandra de la Loza, and Harry Gamboa Jr.
