Originating in the early seventies, Chicano art long remained unrecognised by the art and gallery world. This text features the work of 26 Chicano artists and marks the transition of this unique and exciting movement into the critical fold of contemporary art.

He is the visionary behind the exhibition, and is a third-generation Mexican American who holds the world's largest private collection of Chicano art.
