Gilbert “Magu” Luján (1940--2011) created art rooted in ancient legacies, civil rights struggles, and his barrio experience. A voracious reader and scholar, he strove to push Chicano art beyond “nopales and the Virgen de Guadalupe, and Frida Kahlo”--to encourage us to keep experimenting with new forms as our stories become more complex. The future was his artistic playground.

Recuerdos del Futuro: Roaming Magu’s Chicano Dreams traces the community influences that grounded Magu’s artwork as he explored the possibilities of a Chicano future. Produced with the support of the Estate of Gilbert “Magu” Luján, the exhibition also features elements from community artists responding to Magu’s work on sculpture, installation, and graffiti.

Exhibit through June 25.
