Carlos Almaraz: A Life Recalled is a chronological survey of the artist Carlos Almaraz that draws from perspectives of those who cared for and knew him best. The show traces the trajectory of Carlos’s life: earliest years in Mexico; childhood in East LA; travails in New York; an awakening to the Chicano Movement and participation in Los Four collective; domestic bliss as a husband and father; recognition as a rising Los Angeles studio art star; and victim of AIDS. Carlos Almaraz: A Life Recalled is organized by Karen Rapp with Dan Guerrero and Elsa Flores Almaraz.
