Ghost World

The art of the Chicano Movement of the late ’60s and ’70s sought to evoke the assertions of a burgeoning mass of people who had largely been treated as invisible. The decades that followed saw Latino and Latina artists striking out of traditional painting and sculpture and instead experimenting with conceptual art, photography, and multimedia pieces/performances. The “Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement” exhibit uses 120 works by 32 artists to explore the post-movement world that has emerged in the past three decades. The experimental spirit of contemporary Chicano artists is exemplified by Los Jaichackers' Eamon Ore-Giron, a participating contributor who explains the origin of his collective's name as being "media hijackers . . . to basically take something and make it your own."
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: July 12. Continues through Sept. 20, 2009
