Intersection for the Arts presents Chico & Chang, a group exhibition that looks at the impact of Latino and Asian cultures on California’s visual landscape through new sculpture, video, and painting. Recently released results of the 2010 census show the continuing shift of California’s ethnic composition; Latinos and Asians accounted for virtually all of California’s population growth since 2000.

Immigrant communities have always impacted how places look and feel, from domestic interiors to business signage and architectural flourishes, going hand in hand with the shifting demographic of who lives and works in our state. The artists in this exhibition explore the meshing and sometimes clashing of culture from two of California’s largest populations – the Asian and Latino communities – through both humor and candor. Forsaking stereotypical visual representations that tend to devolve into simplistic depictions of binaries, the show poses complex questions about the assumption and construction of identity and culture.
