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.

In 1972, I co-founded Asco (Spanish for nausea), an East Los Angeles-based artist collective that included core members: Willie Herrón, Gronk, Patssi Valdez, and oftentimes, Humberto Sandoval. Asco emerged from the intense politics of the 1960’s Chicano Movement but also from the hybridity of 20th Century angst/determination that would propel all American youth to question cultural norms, the Vietnam War, and modern to post-modern media influences.

The Asco artists grew up in 1950s-1970s Los Angeles under a shroud of fallout-laden smog that tinted the urbanscape so that mass-media negative stereotypes would stand out in flagrant false relief against the reality of thriving cultures, which were moving quickly towards a vibrant amalgam of languages, customs, and visions. Decoy Gang War Victim employed various cinematic techniques to create an image that would reverberate and crossover into mainstream media consciousness by being presented on local television as having been the actual documentation of the last gang member to be killed in an absurd fait accompli that would contradict the propaganda campaign of major newspapers, which were promoting gang warfare. First Supper (After A Major Riot) was staged and photographed in the exact location where a major police riot had taken place and peaceful protesters who were mourning the assassination of acclaimed English/Spanish language journalist Ruben Salazar were brutally attacked. The site had been under strict condemnation by the authorities, but Asco declared it to be a place of celebration and a feast for the eyes.

The use of our 1970s youthful bodies to create art was in absolute opposition to what was expected of us by a society that often employed harsh methods of oppression, poor educational systems, synchronized narratives that often-portrayed Chicana/o youth in a dismal light despite the long history of active engagement in generating scholarship, impressive creative works, and with full-fledged heroic defense of the United States during time of war and other historical situations. To become self-defined and visually assertive in photographic form depicted a new version that would require complex interpretations. X’s Party and Instant Mural consists of private/public encounters that push the boundaries of persistence and erasure. The absurdity of self-denial is made manifest in A La Mode.

Asco engaged in numerous actions and produced many works during its existence (1972-1985) while being excluded from exhibitions and discourse of official contemporary art canon. In 2011, Los Angeles County Museum of Art presented Asco: Elite of the Obscure, a major retrospective, that served to introduce Asco to an eclectic national and international audience.

Harry Gamboa Jr. – The Asco Years is presented here for a 21st Century viewership that has so much to consider and to reflect upon while taking a closer look at what was and what is currently taking place in our world.

After returning to Los Angeles from France in 1979, Agnès Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city. Bursting with color and vitality, Mur Murs is as much an invigorating study of community and diversity as it is an essential catalog of unusual public art.
