LAS 327 • CHICANAS IN THE VISUAL ARTS
12:30 PM-2:00 PM
This course examines the visual production of Chicana artists. Mestizaje as a feminist paradigm has provided these artists with a powerful venue of expression. Gender, racial and ethnic issues involved in the art created by Chicanas will be discussed. Diverse art strategies created by these artists, such as altar installations, will be explored. Among other issues, the realms of public and private spheres will be addressed. The course draws heavily on the visual production of Chicana women artists from the Southwest, but not exclusively from that geographical area.
