Lecture 4 “Counter-storytelling Chicanx Art and Conceptualism”
Despite the alignment of much Chicanx art with conceptualism and neo-conceptualism, US artists of Mexican American descent have been systematically excluded from mainstream histories of these art movements. Employing Counter-Storytelling, a methodology from Critical Race Theory, as well as the concept of implicit censorship, this lecture reorients the history of conceptualism from the viewpoint of the Chicano civil rights movement. How have Chicanx artists, from the 1960s to today, responded to their exclusion? How can counter storytelling help reveal artistic responses to censorship?
