HOME—So Different, So Appealing


Member Price

HOME—So Different, So Appealing explores works by diverse U.S. Latino and Latin American artists whose engagement with the concept of "home" provides the basis for an alternative narrative of post-war art. Their work brings together an impressive array of formal languages, conceptual strategies, and art historical references with the varied social concerns characterizing both the postwar period in the Americas and an emerging global economy impacting day-to-day life

Home―signaling a dwelling, residence or place of origin―embodies one of the most basic concepts for understanding an individual or group within a larger physical and social environment. Yet home has been a little noted, although prevalent, feature in art since the 1950s, a period in which artists challenged the traditional "object" of the visual arts through the use of material and media culture, new forms, and performative actions and processes.

This publication is issued on the occasion of the exhibition HOME—So Different, So Appealing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from June 11 through October 15, 2017. Authors include Chon A. Noriega, Mari Carmen Ramirez, and Pilar Tompkins Rivas. This exhibition is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA at LACMA
