Chicano Visions: American Painters on the Verge Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cheech Marin, well known for his three decades of work as a comedian, actor, director, and musician, has long championed Chicano artists and been a collector of their work. This breakthrough publication will be available in both hardcover and paperback formats. The exhibition features Marin's collection of over 30 artists' work, and their paintings that depict Hispanic culture, religion, and politics with brilliant color and emotion. Incisive essays by leading scholars describe the origins of Chicano art. In the same way that Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo redefined our understanding and appreciation of Mexican art, Chicano artists such as Gronk, Patssi Valdez, and Carlos Almaraz are putting Chicano art on the cutting edge of contemporary art.

Synopsis:

Highlights the work of more than thirty Chicano artists in a volume that is largely drawn from Marin's own art collection, and includes essays by leading scholars on the history and development of Chicano art.

Synopsis:

Originating in the early seventies, Chicano art long remained unrecognised by the art and gallery world. This text features the work of 26 Chicano artists and marks the transition of this unique and exciting movement into the critical fold of contemporary art.

Synopsis:

Marin's collection of Chicano art--notable as the largest of its kind--is showcased in a blockbuster touring exhibition and is now a landmark book. 96 full-color illustrations.
