Coming to Terms: A Workshop about Political Nomenclatures — "Chicano," "Hispanic," "Latino," Post-Chicano," Latinx," and "Brown"

Thursday, January 21, 6:00pm

Since the introduction of “Chicano/a” in the 1960s as a political identity, a number of distinct but related ethno-political terms have emerged to describe people of mixed indigenous American and European, African, and Asian descent living in the U.S. Replacing terms such as “Chicano/a”, “Mexican-American,” “Latino/a” came to represent diverse immigrant experiences in the U.S., and has recently been updated to “Latinx” to interrupt the grammatical gender of the Spanish language. More recently, “brown” has been used to circumvent the U.S. as the categorical center and has recast both those indigenous to the Americas and immigrants separated by nationality into one group.

This workshop asks: What are the stakes of these different signifiers used to describe artists and their work? How does language bring us together, across race, nationality, and gender, and how does it keep us apart? What naming strategies allow us to maintain the complexity of identity without losing sight of the unity necessary for political mobility? Led by Independent curator Risa Puleo and poet Raquel Gutiérrez, we will read together and discuss texts written by an intergenerational group of artists, art historians, curators, and critics who explore the conflicting histories and tensions of such terminology.

Presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with the Department of Latin American & Latino Studies. All of DePaul Art Museum's winter 2021 programs are generously supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

This event has a capacity of 25 participants. Please email artmuseum@depaul.edu to be placed on the waiting list.

Latinx Inclusivity: A Conversation between Arlene Dávila and Ed Morales, moderated by Bill Johnson González

Thursday, February 4, 6:00pm

This conversation between scholars Arlene Dávila and Ed Morales explores questions about Latinx inclusivity and representation. Dávila recently published Latinx Art: Artists, Markets, and Politics (Duke, 2020) in which she draws on numerous interviews with artists, dealers, and curators to explore the problem of visualizing Latinx art and artists. Morales’s Latinx: The New Force in Politics and Culture (Verso, 2018) considers the ways in which Latinx identity disrupts binary thinking about race in the United States. Together, Dávila and Morales ask, “Where do we go from here with Latinidad?” in the midst of U.S. reckoning with race. The conversation will be moderated by DePaul’s Associate Professor in the English Department Bill Johnson González.

Presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with the Departments of Latin American & Latino Studies, History of Art and Architecture, and the Center for Latino Research. All of DPAM's winter 2021 programs are generously supported by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

(2017) which mapped the intersections and collaborations among a network of queer Chicano artists and their artistic collaborators from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. This period was bookended by the Chicano Moratorium, gay liberation, and feminist movements on one end, and the AIDS crisis on the other. C. Ondine Chavoya is a Professor of Art History and Latina/o Studies at Williams College, where he teaches courses in contemporary art and visual culture.
