Event Description

XicanX: New Visions

This national exhibit curated by Dos Mestizx (Suzy González and Michael Menchaca) challenges previous and existing surveys of Chicano and Latino identity-based exhibitions. Artworks from 34 artists expands upon how Latinx artwork can be established across ideological borders; freely expressing a new wave of images and voices in a post-internet era. The XicanX Art Movement consists of artists from a variety of regions, genders and backgrounds, not necessarily with Mexican origins. This exhibition especially highlights the women, queer, immigrant, indigenous and activist artists who are at the forefront of this movement. With roots in painting, murals and printmaking, the XicanX movement expands to include new media, video and installation-based art making. Per Dos Mestizx, these artists are not afraid to use their voices, and often comment on and/or question socio-political issues, identity and contemporary civil-rights through a conceptual means. Artists include Xandra Ibarra, Yvette Mayorga, Efren Ave, Eric J. Garcia, William Camargo, Lisette Chavez, Nabil Gonzalez, Celeste De Luna, Irene Antonia Diane Reece, Jesusa Marie Vargas, Audrya Flores, Lisa Guevara, Kalli Arte Collective, Yvonne Escalante, Daphne Arthur, Michael R. León, Alan Serna, Xavier Robles Armas, Joel "rage.one" Garcia, Josie Del Castillo, Arleene Correa Valencia, Ben Cuevas, Lilia Berenice Hernandez Galusha, Robert Martinez and Erick Iniguez.
