Duration: 1 hr 15 min.

Artist and author Harry Gamboa Jr. reflects on the social and personal conditions of Chicanos during the second half of the 20th century, focusing on the development of Asco -- a Los Angeles arts group whose key performances include Walking Mural, Instant Mural and Spring Paint LACMA -- and various aspects of performance art. Gamboa also discusses the fotonovela through an examination of his black-and-white photography, its role in representing Chicano(a) iconography, and the traditional media’s response to his work.
