Mural Remix: Sandra de la Loza (lightboxes)
For her solo exhibition Mural Remix, artist and CSRC Visiting Scholar Sandra de la Loza created three dramatic lightboxes featuring kaleidoscopic reworkings of Chicano mural imagery. Using samples drawn from archival photographs of obscure and forgotten murals located in East L.A., the artist remixed this visual history to reimagine the mural format. The lightboxes pay tribute to the artists who created the region's murals, many of which are now faded or obscured by grafitti or no longer extant. Among the artists whose work is incorporated are Roberto Chavez and Ernesto de la Loza, the artist's brother.
Mural Remix: Sandra de la Loza, was one of five L.A. Xicano exhibitions developed by the CSRC for the Getty Foundation's Pacific Standard Time initiative. The complete show ran October 15, 2011, through January 22, 2012, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
