Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A. maps the intersections and collaborations among a network of queer Chicano artists and their artistic collaborators from the late 1960s to the early 1990s.This period was bookended by the Chicano Moratorium, gay liberation, and feminist movements on one end, and the AIDS crisis on the other. For many artists in the exhibition, Axis Mundo marks the first historical examination of their work to date. Over two decades of artwork encompassing painting, performance ephemera, print material, video, fashion, and photography will be presented. The exhibition broadly considers the work of the artists in the context of significant artistic and cultural movements: mail art and artist correspondences; the rise of Chicano, gay, and feminist print media; the formation of alternative spaces; fashion culture; punk music and performance; and artist responses to the AIDS crisis.

Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A. is organized by David Evans Frantz, Curator at ONE Archives at the USC Libraries, and C. Ondine Chavoya, Professor of Art and Latino/a Studies at Williams College in collaboration with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
