About the exhibition:
Rudolfo Anaya, 10/30/37-6/28/20, godfather of Chicano literature wrote his first novel “Bless Me, Ultima,” published 1972. A native of New Mexico, Anaya wrote about Aztlan and the people who inhabited the small towns in and around his birthplace.

“Bless me Ultima” is a book infused with mysticism, and violence directed towards people some don’t understand. Justice is one important theme. What is justice, who rightfully decides what is just, and who do we turn to for guidance regarding eternal justice. Anaya questions if God is in the heavens in the form of a man who punishes and/or forgives. Or is God in the natural world around us, in those who choose to understand its power and beauty, like the curandera Ultima.

Avenue 50 Studio invited the following artists to speak to these significant universal themes Anaya chose to tackle in his book: Cidne Hart, David Martinez, Elmer Guevara, Gwen Freeman, Ilya Navarrete, Isabel Martinez, John Ildefonso, Karen Duckles, Raoul De la Sota, Rebecca Nabarrete, Ruth DeNicola, and Sergio Teran.
