"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."

SAN DIEGO EXHIBIT–Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Yolanda López: Portrait of the Artist is the first solo museum presentation of one of the most influential Chicano/a/x artists who worked in California over the past five decades. The exhibition presents a compendium of López’s work from the 1970s and 1980s, when she created a vivid body of paintings, drawings, and collages that reimagine representations of women within Chicano/a/x culture and society at large. Bringing together approximately 50 works in oil pastel, charcoal, collage, photography, and paint, Portrait of the Artist centers on the artist’s celebrated Guadalupe triptych and an expansive series of related works.
