Día de los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present & Future

On View: November 3, 2018 - March 10, 2019

Jenkins Community Gallery

In conjunction with its 15th annual Día de los Muertos celebration, AAC presents a selection of prints on loan from Self-Help Graphics & Art (SHG), a community-driven nonprofit based in Los Angeles that is devoted to fostering the creation and advancement of new work by Chicano/a and Latinx artists. For its annual Día de los Muertos celebration, begun in 1973, SHG commissions a Día de los Muertos-themed print from a new artist each year. The exhibition at AAC includes prints from SHG’s archive which were originally presented as part of their 2017 exhibition Día de los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present & Future.

Día de los Muertos: A Cultural Legacy, Past, Present & Future is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.
