9780895511102: Yolanda Lopez (A Ver)

“It is important for us to be visually literate; it is a survival skill. The media is what passes for culture in contemporary U.S. culture, and it is extremely powerful. It is crucial that we systematically explore the cultural misdefinition of Mexicans and Latin Americans that is presented in the media.” —Yolanda López

 

Chicana artist Yolanda López achieved international recognition for her groundbreaking and controversial Virgin of Guadalupe series of paintings (1975–78) in which she transformed the beloved icon in order to celebrate and sanctify ordinary Mexican and Mexican American women as hardworking, assertive, and vibrant. Born in San Diego, California, López formally trained as a painter but has since expanded into a variety of media, including installation, video, and slide presentations.

 

Karen Mary Davalos identifies the themes and concerns that unify the artist’s diverse body of work. At times playful, political, and feminist, López is unwavering in her commitment to representing the experiences of Mexican American women in the United States, confronting stereotypes about Latin Americans and challenging U.S. immigration policy.

 

Karen Mary Davalos is associate professor of Chicano/a studies at Loyola Marymount University and the author of Exhibiting Mestizaje.

Book Description UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, Los Angeles, 2008. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. In this groundbreaking overview of Yolanda M. López¿s life and career, Karen Mary Davalos traces the artist¿s participation in Bay Area activism in the late 1960s and her subsequent training in conceptual practices. Davalos explores how López¿s experiences informed her art, which ranges from posters to portraiture and the highly influential Guadalupe Series to later installations. López has consistently challenged predominant modes of Latino and Latina representation, proposing new models of gender, racial, and cultural identity. Yolanda M. López reveals the complexity of the artist¿s work over time and illuminates the importance of her contributions to Chicana/o art, Chicana feminism, conceptual art, and the politics of representation. "Karen Mary Davalos provides a model case study for examining Chicana involvement in the civil rights movements of the 1960s and 1970s, showing how the visual arts played a role within those movements, and for thinking about what came after. Davalos makes a forceful and convincing argument that López is best understood as a conceptual artist¿moving her and this canonical work from a rather simple representational relationship with Chicano/Chicana civil rights to a more complex understanding of how images work within political struggles." -Bruce Robertson, Professor, History of Art and Architecture, University of California, Santa Barbara. 66 color illustrations.
