"Exhibiting Asco"

Ondine Chavoya, Associate Professor of Art History and Latina/o Studies, Williams College
Monday, February 13, 2012 | 5:30-7:00pm
Granoff Music Ctr., Rm 155
20 Talbot Avenue

Professor Chavoya will discuss his curatorial contribution to the exhibition "Asco: Elite of the Obscure," the first retrospective to present the work of the Chicano performance and conceptual art group Asco (1972-1987). Comprised of a tight-knit group of artists from East Los Angeles (Harry Gamboa Jr., Gronk, Willie Herrón and Patssi Valdez). Taking their name from the forceful Spanish word for disgust, Asco used performance, public art and multimedia to respond to social and political turbulence in Los Angeles and beyond.
