Judith F. Baca is best known for The Great Wall of Los Angeles (1976–83), a vibrant 7,740-foot mural in Los Angeles that presents an alternative history of California, one that focuses on the contributions of marginalized and underrepresented communities. Anna Indych-López explores Baca’s oeuvre.
The critically acclaimed exhibition Home—So Different, So Appealing explored the universal concept of “home” through the work of forty US Latino and Latin American artists. The lavishly illustrated catalog includes essays by each of the three curators.  
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 first collection engaging Chicana/o and Latina/o speculative cultural production, Altermundos provides a comprehensive alternative to the view of speculative fiction as a largely white, male, Eurocentric, and heteronormative genre.
The Spring 2018 issue contains essays on the depiction of Zapata in Chicana/o murals, the racialization of the Latina visual and vocal body, mestizo language in Carlos Morton's plays, and the embodiment of inequality in the work of Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez. New online-only subscription option!
