We Saw This, So Should You: MICA First Year MFA E [...]

Chicanismo y Latinismo is a group exhibition that explores how the Chicano movement has continued to evolve by moving beyond its West Coast origins and expand its sense of justice to include a multiplicity of Latin American identities. The show also explores how and why artists of various Latin American nationalities identify with or against the label of being Chicano.

Artists exploring either Chicanismo or Latinismo today use a variety of media and social encounter tactics, including performance, costuming, painting, screenprinting, video, murals, and sculpture to clarify misconceptions of their contemporary movements while bridging their experience into both gallery and community spaces. Whether recent graduates from the Baltimore community, or established in the international art scene, the artists included in Chicanismo y Latinismo exemplify the expansion of the Chicano movement, and how that expansion demands further exploration and conversation surrounding the roots of its participants.

Featured Artists: Hosey Corona, Ronald Mejia, Tanya Garcia, Pablo Machioli, Francisco Delgado, Juan Ortiz, Yadira De La Riva, Michelle Angela Ortiz, Edgar Reyes
Curators: Juan Ortiz, Maria Aldana, Jeremy Stern.
