Double Vision: Art at the Intersection of Identities
Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College

How does art embody, investigate, and reimagine our shifting and multiple identities? Engaging with the work of contemporary artists on view at the Vincent Price Art Museum, artworxLA students will consider how art is interpreted and created from intersecting identities. Since the 1950s, photographer George Rodriguez has documented multiple social worlds. The exhibition Double Vision: The Photography of George Rodriguez is a rare mix of Hollywood and Chicano L.A., film premieres and farmworker strikes, album covers and street scenes, celebrity portraits and civil rights marches. Students will also explore the work of Carolina Caycedo, Yolanda González, and Umar Rashid (Frohawk Two Feathers) and produce their own works that highlight their relationships to family, space and place, the past and the future.
