Visions of Magulandia: The California Journey of Chicano Artist Gilbert ‘Magu’ Lujan from Los Four to Mental Menudo
“Visions of Magulandia: The California Journey of Chicano Artist Gilbert ‘Magu’ Lujan from Los Four to Mental Menudo” will produce three public activities promoting the appreciation and understanding of renowned California artist Gilbert ‘Magu’ Lujan, including a panel discussion; recreation of Magu’s famed Mental Menudo community conversations; and free screening of never-before-seen archival and interview footage, that will take place during the 2017 OC Film Fiesta Festival in Santa Ana. “Visions of Magulandia” will coincide with and broaden the impact of the Aztlan to Magulandia exhibit at UC Irvine, which is part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time L.A./L.A: Latin American & Latino Art in LA initiative.
