In your Face: Chicano Art after C.A.R.A

In your Face: Chicano Art after C.A.R.A

The enriching cultural melting pot of the Chicano people comes to Madrid with In your Face: Chicano Art after C.A.R.A., the splendid continuation of Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation (C.A.R.A.), the milestone exhibition organised in Los Angeles in 1990 that featured the most important Mexican-American artists and art collectives of the period from 1965 to 1985, including Carlos Almaraz, Bárbara Carrasco and Richard Duardo. 

For the first time ever, an exhibition of Chicano art actually achieved the success and recognition it takes to gain access to the major museum circuit and at the same time gave a voice to the Chicano-Mexican movement of that period. Its legacy is clear: there is now a new generation of creators who remain true to the socio-political themes, culture and traditions of the Chicano and Mexican identity that lies at the heart of their artistic endeavours. On this occasion, this work will be on display to the public of Madrid at the Serrería Belga (Belgian Sawmill) Cultural Space.

Curated by Susana Smith Bautista, visitors to the exhibition will be able to admire works from the AltaMed private collection – on show for the first time in Spain - featuring different disciplines ranging from sculpture to photography, engravings, paintings and mixed media. 

With the collaboration of the Mexican Embassy in Spain and AltaMed
