This focused issue of Chicana/Latina Studies represents the first attempt to bring scholarship on Chicana art together in one volume, thus highlighting the critical dexterity and intellectual genius of its proponents. The scholarship included in this focused issue not only challenges the voids and erasures that exist in the art historical canon, but also questions the very structures and intellectual approaches to modern and contemporary art traditionally taken up by art historians and critics.
