is an invitation to a group exhibition by the Chicano artist
collective, Los Quemados, at the Instituto Cultural Mexicano in San
Antonio, Texas, in 1975. Along with presenting information regarding the
exhibition dates, inaugural reception, and program, the invitation also
includes the name of the artists and a brief statement defining the
goals of the collective and their artistic philosophy. As listed, Los
Quemados was comprised of the following artists from Austin and San
Antonio: Santa Barraza, Carolina Flores, Carmen Lomas Garza, Luis
Guerra, Cesar Augusto Martinez, Santos Martinez, Amado Maurilio Peña,
José Rivera, Vicente Rodriguez, and José Treviño.
exhibition announced in the invitation was the first group show for Los
Quemados, a collective formed after its San Antonio predecessor, Con
Safo, broke up in 1975 following disagreement among its members over the
definition of Chicano art. The artists that formed Los Quemados
believed that Chicanos should be able to create art that was not only
“an artistic arm of a political ideology.” They also sought to affirm
the creation of artworks that expanded rather than limited the
perceptions of Chicano art. Both in its historical importance and
aesthetic stance, the text gives testimony to the widespread artistic
dialogues and disagreements that developed in the 1970s regarding the
role of Chicano art.

In 1997, the Archives of American Art received a donation of 20 linear
feet of research material on the Chicano art movement in the United
States and Latin America, compiled by Dr. Tomás Ybarra-Frausto.
Ybarra-Frausto was a professor at Stanford University in the department
of Spanish and Portuguese and has published extensively on Latin
American and U.S. Latino culture. Selected items from this collection
were exhibited at the Archives New York Research center in the fall of

VIVA Records, 1970-2000: Lesbian and Gay Latino Artists of Los
Angeles (The Chicano Archives). Robert Hernandez traces the history and
assesses the impact of VIVA! Lesbian and Gay Latino Artists, a nonprofit
artists’ coalition founded in 1987 in the Silverlake community of Los
Angeles. Their aim was to increase the representation of lesbian Latina
and gay Latino artists in the LA art scene.
Goldman, Shifra M., Charlene Villaseñor Black, and Chon A. Noriega. 2015. Tradition and transformation: Chicana/o art from the 1970s through the 1990s.
Pioneering art historian Shifra Goldman brought the study of Chicana/o
and contemporary Latin American art to the notice of art history. She
was determined to correct the stereotypes that had distorted the
critical reception of Chicana/o and Latina/o art since the 1950s. This
collection of essays, edited and introduced by Charlene Villaseñor
Black, not only represents her groundbreaking scholarship but also
reflects her political activism. In these writings Goldman considers
important theoretical issues, including how the Chicano movement
influenced and was influenced by artists in the Southwest and Mexico and
how different artistic visions clashed and interacted. She also
investigates the careers of major Chicana/o artists, discusses specific
series of artworks, and analyzes exhibitions, beginning with the
historic Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation, which opened in
Los Angeles in 1990 and then traveled cross-country, closing in
Washington, DC, in 1993. Many of the illustrations have not been widely
reproduced, adding to the importance of this collection.
A residency program for artists of color working in the photographic arts.
The Woodstock Artist-in-Residency Program is designed to support
artists of color working in the photographic arts who reside in the
United States that would benefit with access to time, facilities,
financial, critical, and technical support. This activity is created
with an emphasis on supporting artists working in the photographic arts
who are at the brink of their careers and promising talent. All of us
lead very busy lives – the drive for this program is to free the artist
from the busy routines and demands of everyday – and to provide a
sanctuary for creativity.
WOODSTOCK A-I-R encourages participants to pursue creative
risk-taking in an environment rich in cultural resources. Working
without distraction or interruption, participants focus intensely on
their own work, continuing works in progress, setting goals for the
future, and breaking new ground.
Each year CPW offers 7 residencies for artists of color and 1 “critical studies residency” for a curator/critic of color.

CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION Latino Art Now! Re-imaging Global Intersections ConferenceFifth Biennial ConferenceApril 7-9, 2016Chicago, Illinois
Latino Art Now! Re-imaging Global Intersections Conference in Chicago
will examine the contemporary shifting contours of US Latino art and the
and global cultural forces that continuously shape it and how it in turn
shapes these forces.
mid-decade we are witnessing growth of the field in American Art
History as well as in Latino visual culture. Renewed visibility for
artists in a wave of major
exhibitions at national museums and galleries, the expansion of
curatorial and academic infrastructure, and new publication and research
initiatives tend to signal wider and expanding opportunities. Can we
at the present moment map Latino art activity within
a larger transnational, hemispheric and global context and discourse?
Can we re-image a more global American art? How have Latino artists
entered transnational and global art networks? Taking cities as
critical spaces of globalization, what can we say of
urban interventions as sites of artivism? What are the future
directions? In other words, what is Latino Art Now?
We invite multidisciplinary submissions of 300-500 word paper abstracts on the following themes:
· Artivisms/Social Practice Art
· The City as Site and Source
· Outside the White Cube: Digital Interventions
· Queer Geographies of Latino Art
· Intersections: Latino/Latin American
· Comparative Art Histories
· Curatorial Negotiations: Authority and Display
· Recalibrating Framework and Canon
· Art from Emergent Latino Groups
· Public/Private Collecting and Collections
· Global Networks and Intersections
· Latino Futurisms
· Recovering Early Artists and Legacies
· Reassessing Design and Architecture
· Latino Art Market
· Art as an Economic Stimulus
