The Berkshire Eagle: Historical Look at Queer Networks in Chicano L.A.

Posted on September 30, 2019

“‘The show traces a history from the emergence and intersections of the Chicano civil rights movement,
the gay and lesbian liberation movements and the women’s movement and then looks at the impact that
that had in generating new artistic strategies and new artistic modes of making,’ Chavoya said during an
interview with Frantz on Tuesday.

Moreover, Chavoya added, ‘“Axis Mundo” examines these movements’ intersecting goals; their interaction
with nascent cultural forces, such as the punk movement; and their response to the rise of AIDS.
Essentially, the exhibit looks at widely known national phenomena through an understudied lens, one that
has been overlooked.”
