The first extensive examination of Chicano art as a distinct movement in the United States, this informative catalogue elucidates the complex intermingling of cultural and political concerns in the work of more than 150 Mexican American artists, presenting a diverse array of 128 paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs and drawings as well as installations by three artists' collectives and 54 mural projects. Nine essays discuss such topics as the close connection of the Chicano civil rights movement of the 1960s and 70s to the rise of Chicano art, activist art performances of the early 70s, the Chicano community's historical and current relationship to both Mexican and American culture, the feminist concerns of Mexican American women artists, the history of Chicano art exhibitions from 1965 to 1985, and the significance of murals and other forms of public art in the development of the movement.
