Coinciding with the 30-year anniversary of the groundbreaking historic survey, Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation, 1965-1985 (CARA), Angels Gate Cultural Center presents Raised as roosters: Relief prints and drawings by Abel Alejandre and Guerra. Alejandre and Guerra, widely respected for their rendering and printmaking skills, share a selection of new and recent works on paper which provide an opportunity to reflect upon themes of Xicano identity, masculinity, and traditional Mexican visual motifs. Raised as roosters is curated by Kristina Newhouse, Curator of Exhibitions at the Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum in Long Beach.
A virtual, self-guided tour will be available beginning September 19th with public in-person viewings pending reopening of the AGCC galleries at the guidance provided by state and local health orders.

This archived exhibition explores the 1970’s Chicano art movement in East Los Angeles. With the establishment of the first Chicano art gallery in East Los Angeles, Chicano artists initiated a collective reimagining the urban landscape through such media as photography, graphic arts, murals, painting, and sculpture. These artists mapped another L.A., harnessing their work as part of a social protest and community empowerment movement.
