Yolanda González: Sueño de Familia / Dream of Family examines the artistic legacy of one family across 150 years from Mexico to the United States. Centered on the practice of Yolanda González, the exhibition creates a family portrait across five generations through works spanning the 1870s to the present, including drawings, paintings, ceramics, and printmaking. The exhibition considers transnational, long-term, and largely matriarchal transmissions of artistic inquiry and vocation, broadening the origin story of connected visual lineages of Chicana/o artists of González’s generation.

 

Sueño de Familia references both González’s iconic ongoing series of portraits Sueños (2000-present), or “dreams,” and the act of dreaming – from associations forwarded through imagery within the artworks themselves to aspirational notions of dreaming with and for one’s family. As the works speak to each other across time, this exhibition charts a family tree of artists and elucidates new understandings of multigenerational, feminist art histories. González’s family of artists includes great-grandfather Juan Nepomuceno López (b. 1860 – d. 1940) trained in Mexico by a French teacher, grandmother Margarita “Mague” López Ibarra (b. 1906 – d. 1999), active between 1920 and 1978, mother Yolanda “Yola” López González (b. 1930), who took up ceramics at the age of 83, González herself (b. 1964), prolific across diverse media since the 1980s, and niece Lauren Stacia González (b. 1988), an artist working in painting, printmaking, and ceramics.
