Rewrites our understanding of the last 50 years of Chicana/o cultural production. Chicana/o Remix casts new light not only on artists-such as Sandra de la Loza, Judy Baca, and David Botello, among others-but on the exhibitions that feature their work, and the collectors, curators, critics, and advocates who engage it. Combining feminist theory, critical ethnic studies, art historical analysis, and extensive archival and field research, Karen Mary Davalos argues that narrow notions of identity, politics, and aesthetics limit our ability to understand the full capacities of Chicana/o art. She employs fresh vernacular concepts such as the "errata exhibit, " or the staging of exhibits that critically question mainstream art museums, and the "remix, " or the act of bringing new narratives and forgotten histories from the background and into the foreground. These concepts, which emerge out of art practice itself, drive her analysis and reinforce the rejection of familiar narratives that evaluate Chicana/o art in simplistic, traditional terms, such as political versus commercial, or realist versus conceptual. Throughout Chicana/o Remix, Davalos explores undocumented or previously ignored information about artists, their cultural production, and the exhibitions and collections that feature their work. Each chapter exposes and challenges conventions in art history and Chicana/o studies, documenting how Chicana artists were the first to critically challenge exhibitions of Chicana/o art, tracing the origins of the first Chicano arts organizations, and highlighting the influence of Europe and Asia on Chicana/o artists who traveled abroad. As a leading scholar in the study of Chicana/o artists, art spaces, and exhibition practices, Davalos presents her most ambitious project to date in this re-examination of fifty years of Chicana/o art production.

Is Latino art an integral part of modern American art? Presenting over one hundred major artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America seeks to "recalibrate" enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists - those of Latin American descent and heritage - express their relationship to American art, history, and culture. Ramos addresses the whole issue of the definition of "Latino art" and how this emerged within the context of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, as American artists of Latino descent began to give a tangible face to their culture and history. Highlights include an installation altar by Amalia Mesa-Bains, the "recycled" films of Raphael Montanez Ortiz, and a 1960 geometric painting by Carmen Herrera. Other notable artists include Olga Albizu, Melesio "Mel" Casas, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Margarita Cabrera, Enrique Chagoya, Teresita Fernandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Luis Jimenez, Ana Mendieta, Pepon Osorio, Sophie Rivera, Freddy Rodriguez, and John M. Valadez, among many others. Contents: Foreword by Elizabeth Broun, Director, Smithsonian American Art Museum; Introduction - Primeros Pasos: First Steps Toward an Operative Construct of Latino Art by Tomas Ybarra-Frausto; What is Latino About American Art? by E. Carmen Ramos; Commentaries on the artworks by E. Carmen Ramos, with Jennifer L. Bauman, Florencia Bazzano-Nelson, and Virginia M. Mecklenburg.

Hundreds of Hispana and Hispano artists in New Mexico created works of art for the various New Deal programs, but until now they have been mostly nameless, 'sin nombre'. Though many people told her she wouldn't find any artists, the author dug deep into archives and uncovered a wealth of material: artists who made paintings, murals, sculpture, furniture, or who worked in metal, weaving and fibre arts. This book shows that as a result of Eurocentric aesthetic values, rigid art historical categories, and racial prejudice, New Mexico artists were stereotyped and labelled craftsmen. Their work was classified not as art but as handicraft or labour. An exhibit at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, which opened in June 1999, brought to the public a major selection of artists working in New Mexico under New Deal programs and inspired other artists and family members to come forward to identify themselves and their artwork. The artists who are still alive are now mostly in their eighties or older. This beautiful book restores an important chapter in American art of the 1930s and 1940s to the public record and brings long overdue recognition to a generation of New Mexico artists.
