Vanguardias Transnacionales: Reconciling the Local and the Global in Chicano Art

This dissertation takes a comparative temporal and geographical approach to analyze and compare the networks of Mexican graphic artists and collectives in the 1930s and 1940s with the Chicano graphic artists of the 1960s and 1970s, highlighting the influence of the Taller de Gráfica Popular. It traces the artistic networks created by Mexican and US artists who travelled across the border to collaborate. As specific case studies, it examines the influence of Mexican printmaking on graphic art in social movement newspapers and graphic experimental workshops in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s.
