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:

A Large, Unruly Game of Hopscotch
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Inspired by Gamboa’s writings and the icon surrealist novel Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar, a whimsically expanded take on the schoolyard pastime is mapped out on the museum courtyard.

Urbanscape of Mirage – Vital Signs – Stanford University

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.

2017-2018 Guest Performance Artist Series  |  Curated by Cassils

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
