Axis Mundo : Queer Networks in Chicano L.A.
A richly illustrated book exploring the LA art scene in the sixties and seventies
Working between the 1960s and early 1990s, the artists profiled in this compendium represent a broad cross section of L.A.'s art scene. With nearly 400 illustrations and ten essays, this volume presents histories of artistic experimentation and reveals networks of collaboration and exchange that resulted in some of the most intriguing art of late 20th-century America.
From "mail art" to the rise of Chicano, gay, and feminist print media; the formation of alternative spaces to punk music and performance; fashion culture to the AIDS crisis-the artists and works featured here comprise a boundary-pushing network of voices and talents.
Winner of the 2019 ALAA-Arvey Foundation Exhibition catalogue award.
