Visual expressions by Mexican Americans and Chicanas/os

The purpose with the project is investigations from postcolonial, semiotic and discourse theoretical perspectives of visual expressions among Mexican Americans and Chicanas/os. Focus is visual art in different media, through which questions are raised on identity and identification in relation to geographical location, cultural history and place-specific origin. Several research journeys have been made to California and areas with a concentration of street murals in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. The project has gradually emerged through research networks, papers on national and international conferences, articles in journals, and chapters in anthologies. Previous publications include research on mural-painted street art in California, feminist visual art by Yolanda López, conceptual street performances by Asco, Willie Herrón’s new street mural in City Terrace, and established art verses subversive in Los Angeles. Current approaches include conceptual performance art by Guillermo Gómez-Peña and La Pocha Nostra, and visual nodes of subversive visual expressions, such as, for example, the religious Mexican icon the Virgin of Guadalupe.
