A collection of essays and images of posters to highlight the role this art form has in the Chicano struggle for self-determination and indentification in California. These posters have been a primary source of cultural expression, as the images and icons used come largely from a synthesis of Mexican history, the political struggle and civil rights movement in California and a totally unique bicultural and bilingual context. The project brought together an interdisciplinary team of curators and scholars that explores Chicano posters as part of a complex and inclusive political, social and cultural movement. Essay topics include "Postmodernism, or why this is just another poster," "The anatomy of a RCAF poster," "Where are the Chicana print-makers?" and "Remapping the Chicano expressive culture," among others.
