"Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement "is the first comprehensive consideration of Chicano art in almost two decades and the largest exhibition of cutting-edge Chicano art ever presented at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Traditionally described as work created by Americans of Mexican descent, Chicano art first emerged during the vibrant Chicano rights movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. This catalog and exhibition explore the experimental tendencies within today's Chicano art, which is oriented less toward painting and polemical assertion and more toward conceptual art, performance, film, photography, and media-based art, as well as "stealthy" artistic interventions in urban spaces. Three essays by Rita Gonzalez, Howard N. Fox, and Chon A. Noriega explore the topic in depth. With more than two hundred color illustrations, twenty-five individual artist portfolios, and a wryly subversive chronology of significant moments in Chicano cultural history, "Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement "charts new territory and provides a conceptual sampling of Chicano art today.

Rita Gonzalezis Assistant Curator of American art andHoward N. Foxis Curator of contemporary art, both at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.Chon A. Noriegais Director of the Chicano Studies Research Center and Professor in the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media at the University of California, Los Angeles.
