A Ver: Revisioning Art History Series

A Ver: Revisioning Art History
Bueno, after posting a list of art books a few days ago, my friend Miguel Juarez informed me that many of them are off of this series called A Ver: Revisioning Art History out of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center.

The A Ver Series "stems from the conviction that individual artists and their coherent bodies of work are the foundation for a meaningful and diverse art history. This series explores the cultural, aesthetic, and historical contributions of Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, and other U.S. Latino artists.

Each volume contains a foreword by the series editor, a scholarly essay, full-color illustrations, an exhibition history, and a selected bibliography of writings on the artist."

Here are the titles they have already published.
