AXIS MUNDO: QUEER NETWORKS IN CHICANO L.A.
SEPTEMBER 9 – DECEMBER 31, 2017

Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A. is a part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a farreaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Axis Mundo maps the intersections and collaborations among a network of queer Chicano artists and their artistic collaborators from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. This period was bookended by the Chicano Moratorium, gay liberation, and feminist movements on one end, and the AIDS crisis on the other. For many artists in the exhibition, Axis Mundo marks the first historical examination of their work to date. Over two decades of artwork encompassing painting, performance ephemera, print material, video, fashion, and photography will be presented.
