Guadalupe Rosales: Echoes of a Collective Memory

In her first solo museum exhibition, artist Guadalupe Rosales explores the radical potential of the archive in a new immersive installation that investigates collective histories within Latinx youth culture in Los Angeles, activates memory, and reflects on everyday experiences in communities of color in the 1990s, from private spaces such as the teenage bedroom, to cruising, parties and other forms of socializing.

Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology

Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology examines the transnational exchange and circulation of revolutionary and activist ideas through which political protest intersected with experimental artistic practices across generations, and between the U.S. and Mexico.



Rituals of Labor and Engagement: Carolina Caycedo and Mario Ybarra Jr.

As part of the /five initiative at The Huntington, the Vincent Price Art Museum presents Rituals of Labor and Engagement with artists Carolina Caycedo and Mario Ybarra Jr. Through their exploration of the Huntington’s collections, these two artists reconsider their relationship to landscape, traditional forms of media, and the process of how history is constructed, opening up alternative propositions for engagement.

Wang Xu: Garden of Seasons

Wang Xu: Garden of Seasons uses Monterey Park’s Heritage Falls Park as the source for a lyrical reflection on the material reality of monumental sculpture and the manner in which such objects become animated through collective acts of interpretation.



Mariana Yampolsky: Photographs from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

Mexican photographer Mariana Yampolsky (1925–2002) captured the beauty and desolation of Mexico and its history. American born, she moved to Mexico at the age of 19 and built an artistic practice honoring the cultural, natural, and architectural elements that fed her spiritually and inspired her to become a Mexican citizen.
