Organized in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and UCLA Chicano Studies Resarch Center, LACMA presents HOME — So Different, So Appealing, an exhibition featuring U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who have used the deceptively simple idea of “home” as a powerful lens through which to view the profound socioeconomic and political transformations in the hemisphere. Spanning seven decades and covering art styles from Pop Art and Conceptualism to “anarchitecture” and “autoconstrucción,” the artists featured in this show explore one of the most basic social concepts by which individuals, families, nations, and regions understand themselves in relation to others. In the process, their work also offers an alternative narrative of postwar and contemporary art.
The show will include works by Christina Fernandez, as well as other internationally known figures such as Daniel Joseph Martinez, Gordon Matta-Clark, Raphael Montañez Ortiz, Guillermo Kuitca, Doris Salcedo, Laura Aguilar, Amalia Mesa-Bains, Allora & Calzadilla and Felix González -Torres.
This program is a part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin America and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. For tickets and further information, click here.
