Pasadena Art Alliance

Located in San Pedro, Angels Gate Cultural Center is a lead partner in the state-designated San Pedro Arts and Cultural District, uniting art, community and culture through its contemporary art exhibitions, community arts education, and cultural events.

This grant will help support the print exhibition Mexicanismo/Chicanismo, curated by Kristina Newhouse, curator of contemporary art at Cal State Long Beach’s University Art Museum. The exhibition will explore the rise of and subsequent pushback against Mexicanismo in Mexico, as contrasted with Chicanismo in the United States and what that term means today, nearly 50 years after it was coined. The exhibition will be on view from September to December 2020.
