TIMEDEPARTMENT/COLLEGESESSION TITLESESSION INFORMATION
12:00pm - 12:30pmFrost Art Museum
Virtual Tour Description: The art produced by Mexican and Mexican American artists in the U.S. has a long history as many parts of the Southwestern portion of the U.S. were formally Mexico. Too often Mexican American artists have been left outside of canonical readings of American art; each artist in this exhibition expands traditional notions of what it means to be an American artist today. Otros Lados: Itzel Basualdo, Hugo Crosthwaite, and Judithe Hernández brings together three generations of artists who are deeply informed by Mexican and Mexican American experiences. As one of the founders of the Chicano Art Movement, Judithe Hernández (b.1948, Los Angeles) has been recognized for her contribution to the expansion of how we define American art. The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum organized this exhibition to complement FIU’s Common Reading Program and First Year Experience course. This year, FIU’s entering class and other new students read A Dream Called Home by Reyna Grande. This book, along with others by Grande, intimately portray the author’s experience as an immigrant and the challenges she faced during her university studies and the early stages of her professional life. Each artist in this exhibition is deeply rooted in the Mexican American experience.
