As part of the Young Scholars Symposium, Distinguished Visiting Professor, José E. Limón, Professor of American Literature Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Texas' Mody C. Boatright Regents Professor of American Literature Emeritus, will present a lecture titled: Sighting Mexican America among the Phantoms: Photorealism and the Encompassing Life and Art of Jesse Treviño. This lecture will be held on April 26, 2018 at 210-214 McKenna Hall. This lecture is open to the public.
About the lecture: Professor Chon Noriega of UCLA, the leading critic of the art of Mexican America, metaphorically defines this art as a three-fold series of what he calls "phantom sightings." In this lecture, José E. Limón will discuss the life and work of San Antonio, Texas artist, Jesse Treviño, and their relationship to this tri-fold definition and to the increasingly socially diverse world of Mexican America.
