Just Another Poster?: Chicano Graphic Arts in California = Solo Un Cartel Mas?: Artes Graficas Chicanas En Californiaby Chon A. Noriega
Synopses & Reviews
Just Another Poster? investigates the critical role posters and other graphic materials played in the Chicano struggle for self-determination in California, from the borderland of San Diego to the urban metropolis of San Francisco. This volume of essays by an interdisciplinary group of scholars and curators represents the first comprehensive study of the ways the poster, as a medium of expression largely relegated to the margins of art world display, distribution, and critical reception, has been a primary form of cultural expression within Chicano communities in California and across America. Chon Noriega is associate professor of film and television at the Univerity of Califonria at Los Angeles. The other contributors include JosŽ Montoya, George Lipsitz, Tere Romo, Holly Barnet-Sanchez, Rafael PŽrez-Torres, and Carol A. Wells.
Book News Annotation:
Published in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the University Art Museum, U. of California at Santa Barbara in order to explore the profound role art has played in the Chicano Movement in California and the effectiveness of the aesthetics of the poster medium itself. Following an introductory chapter, an artist's statement by Jos<'e> Montoya, and a section of 57 color plates, five essays discuss poster art and the Movimiento Chicano, the iconography of the Chicano poster, presence and absence in the work of Chicana artists of the Movimiento, and Chicano expressive culture. An appendix discusses printmaking. Presented in Spanish and English. Distributed by the U. of Washington Press.
