Fotonovelas by Harry Gamboa Jr.
As part of the See What You Mean project, artist Harry Gamboa Jr. worked with over 40 young adults and college students from across Los Angeles during his yearlong Getty Arists Program (GAP) residency. Casting student performers, seasoned professionals, and five notable paintings from the Museum’s collection as characters in surreal visual melodramas, Gamboa created a series of twelve playful and provocative fotonovelas – or photo-stories. Gamboa’s fotonovelas, a medium he has worked in for many years, are inspired by his childhood fascination with comic books and the rich tradition of graphic and photographic adaptations of popular stories and films that gained popularity in Latino and Chicano communities during the 1950s.

The See What You Mean fotonovela series can be viewed and are available for free download:

Artist Talk  | Harry Gamboa Jr. Presents “Urbanscape of Mirage”

Thursday
October 19, 2017
4:00pm – 6:00pm

Roble Gym  |  75 minutes including Q&A

Imagery of Asco (1972-1985), Virtual Vérité (2005 – 2017), and current performance works will accompany this lecture that focuses on the recent demolition of the iconic Los Angels 6th Street Bridge, the confluence of freeways, and the familiar nondescript locations that often serve as a starting point for anonymous journeys across an ocean of undulating asphalt. The swirling milieu of multiple cultures/languages of Los Angeles are in perpetual collision/melding/erasure as sudden tectonic shifts reset the clock towards countdown to consciousness. The historical relevance of events and places are subject to system loss of memory.

Harry Gamboa Jr. – Chicano Male Unbonded Photography Series
Excerpt from essay COLA 96 97 98 exhibition catalogue (pg. 26)
written by
Robert Byer

Gamboa’s work has continued in this “social surrealist” vein, driven by a need to distort and magnify the absurdity, chaos, and violence of contemporary urban experience.  As in Gamboa’s other work, the Chicano Male Unbonded series rhetorically exaggerates and mocks stereotypical perceptions of ethnic identity as a response to his awareness of the complexities of negotiating and affirming it.  The strategy of the photographs is simultaneously to acknowledge and counteract the image of the Chicano male as signifier of urban danger and criminality, as menacing Other.  Gamboa poses and photographs his subjects in a way that seems to confirm or heighten such stereotypical connotations.  A sense of dangerous confrontation is evoked by a series of theatrical devices:  the men stand alone in deserted, dimly lit outdoor urban settings at night; with arms crossed or in their pockets, they look directly and unsmilingly into the camera; a low camera angle endows them with a presence that looms menacingly over us.  These characters of the urban setting and of self-presentation guide the viewer to reductively read them as signifiers of the character of the photo graphed subjects, as identifying marks of Chicano maleness.  This reading is subverted by the titles and captioned biographies of the photographed subjects, who are identified as academics, artists, actors, lawyers and other professionals, pillars of the community not the potential muggers they at first appear to be.  Another look discloses quite ordinary dress and unremarkable physiognomies.  The idea of “the Chicano male” is displaced finally by a series of individuals who do not exhibit any obvious visible qualities which connects or defines them as “Chicano,” a quality contained by rather than containing them.  His subjects, then, are “unbonded” both in our initial sense of them being not yet bonded (that is, criminally dangerously, on the loose, beyond the control of the authorities), and in our final sense of their being freed from such “bonded” images and from the bonding performed by such images.

Illusions of Urbanscape
Thursday
April 20, 2017
6:30pm
Quintero Theatre
Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts
University of Houston

In this new lecture, Gamboa looks at myth in contemporary society with images and videos of his work. For more than forty years, his artistic lens has responded to the Los Angeles “urbanscape” with its subtle layering of codes, rules, and visual markers that contribute to making a sophisticated living space for millions of people
