A look at the impact of Latino and Asian cultures on California’s visual landscape

How are place and location defined? Whose stories of immigration are being told? Where are sites of cultural connection and discord located? How does popular culture intersect with larger issues of cultural representation?

Chico & Chang explores the interwoven and sometimes incongruous cultures of two of California’s largest populations, the Latino and Asian communities. From a low-rider rickshaw to work made by “Dreamers,” undocumented youth who are fighting to gain legal status, Chico and Chang examines the impact of Asian and Latino cultures on the changing face of California through sculpture, video, illustration and painting. Posing complex questions about the assumption and construction of culture, the work in this exhibition provides opportunities to see where the boundaries of these two immigrant populations begin, intersect and sometimes collide.

Chico & Chang features work by Pablo Cristi, Sergio De La Torre, Takehito Etani, Ana Teresa Fernandez, Clement Hanami, Mike Lai, Angelica Muro & Juan Luna-Avin, Favianna Rodriguez, Lordy Rodriguez, Tracey Snelling and Charlene Tan.
