Labor + a(r)t + orio: Latinx Art as Research

Principal Investigator: Dr. Laura Pérez – Chair, Latinx Research Center; Professor of Chicanx and Latinx Studies, UC Berkeley


This project aims to research the still understudied field of US Latinx art, particularly mid-career and new artists, and to expand system-wide UC collaboration with museums displaying this work. In collaboration with The Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture in Riverside, the project will include a Summer Institute and Student Curatorial Fellowship.
