Home—So Different, So Appealing features U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who have used the idea of "home" as a powerful lens through which to view the profound socioeconomic and political transformations in the hemisphere.

About

Spanning seven decades and covering art styles from Pop Art and Conceptualism to “anarchitecture” and “autoconstrucción,” the artists featured in this show explore one of the most basic social concepts by which individuals, families, nations, and regions understand themselves in relation to others. In the process, their work also offers an alternative narrative of postwar and contemporary art. The show will include works by internationally known figures such as Daniel Joseph Martinez, Gordon Matta-Clark, Raphael Montañez Ortiz, Guillermo Kuitca, and Doris Salcedo, as well as younger emerging artists such as Carmen Argote and Camilo Ontiveros. Including a wide range of media that often incorporate material from actual homes, the exhibition also features several large-scale installations and an outdoor sculpture. This project is organized by LACMA and the Chicano Studies Research Center at UCLA, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
