These artists have profoundly influenced the aesthetic voices of Latinas in the latter half of the 20th century, and for the first time will be shown together.

About

Within a culture, a socio-political movement and a profession dominated by men, artists Judithe Hernández and Patssi Valdez have each created bodies of works that profoundly influenced the aesthetic voices of Latinas in the latter half of the 20th century. The two artists took seemingly parallel paths from their childhoods in East L.A. to their coming-of-age during the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in the 1970s. Hernández was the fifth artist, and the only woman, invited to join the collectiveLos Four , and Valdez was a founding member, and the only woman, in the Asco group. Both went on to successful individual careers. In addition to displaying photographs and other materials to contextualize their participation in these important artist collectives, One Path Two Journeys will bring together for the first time their current works, including a new collaborative installation.
