The exhibition Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology at the Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) explores three radical artistic movements and publications that spanned the Mexic0–US border and the 20th century, all with the name Regeneración. The first is the anarchist newspaper founded by the Los Angeles-based, Mexican Flores Magón brothers and which ran from 1900 to 1918; followed by the journal Regeneración (1970–75), connected to the artistic collective ASCO, and which emerged as an important voice of the Chicano Movement. The last is the experimental space Regeneración/Popular Resource Center of Highland Park (1993–99), which was a hub of performance, music, and activism, among other causes, in support of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation, who had been waging a war of indigenous resistance against the Mexican government.
This Saturday, VPAM has organized a day of art workshops and performances in conjunction with the exhibition. These include dance workshops — flamenco with Briseyda Zárate and Danza Azteca with Jennifer Sanchez — as well as a zine workshop with Joe Galarza and a silkscreen workshop with Felicia Montes from the Mujeres de Maiz collective, both of whom were active with the Popular Resource Center. Raul Baltazar and Victoria Delgadillo, two other artists deeply involved in the Highland Park space, will lead a performance art workshop, and will screen a video based on a performance Baltazar staged last year, in which he invited participants on a procession through the hills of El Sereno.
When: Saturday, January 26, 12–4pm
Where: Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) (East Los Angeles College, 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez, Monterey Park, California)
