I did a feature story on the L.A. Chicano art collective Asco for Studio 360 (complete with reference to Chihuahua skulls), tied to their big retrospective at LACMA. It’s my first big piece for Studio 360, so please have a listen!!

Taking the week off because it’s the freakin’ end of summer and I’ve got work comin’ out the hoo-ha. In the meantime, may I kindly direct you to ARTnews magazine’s September issue, where I’ve got a story on Chicano art — one of the most challenging pieces of writing I’ve ever done.
So, if you want to learn all about what went down in the photo above (that’s really LACMA and it was really sprayed) and you’re keen on reading about a crew of artists who you may not know, but whom you should…then, by all means, click right here. Or, better yet, pick up the mag, which is on newsstands now.
