The Art of Rebellion: Social Justice and Chicana & Chicano Visual Arts

How has art been used to mobilize communities and disseminate messages of social justice? Is art just a commodity that is only accessible to the elite? How has the idea of “art for the people” shifted the way we look at art? 

In this Humanities Washington talk, Chicano artist Jake Prendez traces the history of social justice art, from the rise of Mexican muralism to its influence on American artwork from the civil rights era and the modern era. Explore how the means of production and new technologies made art accessible worldwide and join Prendez as he deconstructs his own artwork to show how it relates to this greater narrative.
