Ruiz, Vicki, ed. Sandstorm, Alan R. They make use of, and often radically rework, pre-Columbian Mesoamerican and other non-Western notions of art and art-making, and they struggle to create liberating versions of familiar iconography such as the Virgin of Guadalupe and the Sacred Heart. Filled with representations of spirituality and allusions to non-Western visual and cultural traditions, the work of these Chicana artists is a vital contribution to a more inclusive canon of American arts.
Show more Show less. We applaud Duke University Press for having done an exceptional job in the production of this book. Beautifully designed, it is printed on heavy paper with high quality graphics and carefully chosen fonts. This high production value pays respect to the quality, depth, and diversity of the Chicana arts movement, which-as Perez argues-encompasses a rich array of literature, essays, film, and fine arts including prints, silkscreen, painting, photography, murals, textiles, mixed media, digital art, conceptual art, and performance art.
Perez's arguments are theoretically sound and always consistent with the organizing category of politicized spirituality. With their richly colorful artwork, these Chicanas successfully show the Western world who they are and why they aren't just another Spanish-speaking minority. Perez not only examines the different stories behind many Chicana's religious installations, but she encourages her audience to empower themselves by altering their self image and embrace the future that awaits them.
