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

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.
