Serigrafía surveys the powerful tradition of information design in California's Latino community, featuring thirty influential silkscreens from the 1970s to the present. Created at and distributed by artist-led collectives, or centros, the works in the exhibition explore subjects such as the Viet Nam war, United Farm Workers grape boycott, U.S. intervention in Central America and the Caribbean, and the Iraq War.  Recent work includes marriage equality and the Occupy Wall Street Movement.  All were conceived to provoke, protest, and praise.  Occupying the formal ground somewhere between mass media and art object, they have often been relegated to the margins of display and critical reception more due to their political content, than for their aesthetics.
