Chicano Art Movement
This week on Live Wire Kristina Perea Gilmore from the Crocker Art Museum will talk about the Eduardo Carrillo Exhibition. Kristina is the in-house curator of this exhibition, She will talk about the symbolism in the artwork and Carrillo’s activism and how
significant the artist has been to the Chicano Art Movement in California. “As seen in his artwork, teaching, and social activism, Carrillo never walked away from efforts to eliminate the racism that spurred the civil rights movement,” said Guest Curator Susan Leask. “He was an inspirational leader and visionary with ability to bring people together in collaborative and efficacious ways, as he addressed racism and injustice throughout his career. He was very passionate about creating programs and platforms that promoted greater awareness of Latin American culture, aesthetics, and social concerns, and that passion can be seen in his art.
