Among a few galleries participating in the Getty Center’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA programing, saltfineart presents Descendants and Dissonance: Cultural Iconography in Contemporary L.A. throughout October.

This exhibition brings together three graphically inspired artists, Oscar Magallanes, Linda Vallejo and Sonia Romero. Living and working in Los Angeles, these artists are tied to Chicano culture and the tradition of challenging iconography through the use of irony and appropriation.

In using iconography as political and cultural tools, the artists’ work correlates to How to Read El Pato Pascual: Disney’s Latin America and Latin America’s Disney  and The Making of the Modern: Indigenismo, 1800-2015 at the San Diego Museum of Art, says a Salt statement.
