Chicana/o Day at the Museum

(p.213) 7 Conclusion
Chicana/o Remix

Karen Mary Davalos

NYU Press

The book closes with an experimental conclusion that retells three stories about Chicana/o art in Los Angeles and the ways that museum visitors and curators inhabit and reimagine mainstream institutions. Therefore, the last chapter embodies the methodology of the remix by favoring exploration and reconstruction, and thus refusing closure. More importantly, remixing is not simply a reordering of Chicana/o art but a rethinking of the conventions and norms that create its invisibility within American and Latin American art history. The three stories each convey how Chicana/o museum visitors and curators bring their transnational and transmodern interpretations of art, culture, and identity into sites of power. Their interpretations suggest that the future of art history depends upon an inclusive, expansive, and critical methodology in the study of art.
