East of the River: Chicano Art Collectors Anonymous, 2000, Installation view

This landmark exhibition of contemporary Chicano art from private Chicano collections in Southern California portrayed Chicano art and culture through the eyes of the community of collectors who support and preserve it. Guest curator Chon Noriega, assistant professor at UCLA, presented art that addressed aesthetic, sociopolitical, and economic issues. With works drawn from seven distinguished Los Angeles collections, the exhibition also focused on the practice of collecting itself, highlighting approaches as diverse as the range of art represented. Among the artists included were Carlos Almaraz, Alfredo Banuelos de Haro, Marietta Bernstorff, Barbara Carrasco, Victor Durazo, Elsa Flores, Jose Galvez, Diane Gamboa, Roberto Gil de Montes, Yolanda Gonzalez, Salomon Huerta, Joseph Maruska, Daniel J. Martinez, David Serrano, and John Valadez.
