Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell surveys the career of Laura Aguilar, a Chicana photographer who is most widely known for black-and-white nude self-portraits that are frank and self-assertive, yet deeply sensitive and poetic. This catalog accompanies Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell, a retrospective at the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College opening September 16, 2017.
The Fall 2017 issue contains essays on Latino group consciousness; the use of photovoice to analyze psychological distress in migrant farmworker children; how perception and treatment of teenage Latinas affects identity formation; and the queering of chisme in Josefina López’s Real Women Have Curves. New online-only subscription option!
Since its founding, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) has played a pivotal role in the development of scholarly research on the Chicano-Latino population, which is now the largest minority group and the fastest growing population in the United States. Our research mission is supported by five distinct components: a library with special collections archive, an academic press, collaborative research projects, public programs and community-based partnerships, and a competitive grant and fellowship program.
