Fernando de Szyszlo, Regreso a Mendieta, 2016, acrylic on canvas, 59 x 47 1/2″, courtesy Latin American Masters.

With this iteration of PST, Southern California may just be getting around to fully recognizing the importance of art in the Americas south of our own. However, Latin American Masters (LAM) is a gallery that has focused on modern and contemporary Latin American art since its 1987 inception. Fittingly, it will host four PST shows of artists inspired by the intermingled histories of pre-Hispanic and Colonial art. Renowned Colombian textile artist Olga de Amaral weaves fiber and gold into sensuous sculptural abstractions. Offering a contemporary vision of oro, her exhibition at LAM will coincide with the Getty’s Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas. Also influenced by Pre-Hispanic textiles, Peruvian painter Fernando de Szyszlo’s mysterious paintings straddle representation and abstraction. Next, LAM will exhibit mixedmedia self-portraits by provocative Oaxacan master Francisco Toledo; and finally, Puerto Rican Arnaldo Roche’s fantastic visions created by rubbing, scraping and printing.  —Annabel Osberg

Ken Gonzales Day Bone Grass Boy no. 28 1993 96 hi res Galerías en LA/LA

Ken Gonzales-Day, Bone-Grass Boy, #28, 1993–96, courtesy Luis De Jesus Los Angeles.

Between 1993–96, Ken Gonzales-Day created Bone-Grass Boy: The Secret Banks of the Conejos River, a conceptual yet cuttingly poignant photo-novella that germinated later bodies of work. Set during the U.S.-Mexican War, Bone-Grass Boy narrates the effects of the Mexican Cession on two protagonists, both played by Gonzales-Day: Nepomuceno, a Mexican soldier from what is now New Mexico, and Ramoncita, a Native/Latina forced to kill the rancher to whom she has been indentured. Through this series, Gonzales-Day explored aspects of his personal identity as a gay Mexican-American alongside larger societal controversies surrounding AIDS, gay and transgender rights, immigration and multiculturalism. These issues are timelier than ever; and Gonzales-Day has revisited Bone-Grass Boy, to be assembled for the first time since its creation and exhibited at Luis De Jesus. The show will include vintage and new work along with sculptural objects that Gonzales-Day used in creating this seminal series.  —Annabel Osberg
