Laura Aguilar was an East Los Angeles-based photographer who made work about her experiences at the intersections of several marginalized communities. Some of the concerns central to her practice were themes of gender, race, sexuality, body size and class. Her career retrospective took place in 2018 at the Vincent Price Art Museum on the the ELAC campus.
Please familiarize yourself with Aguilar’s work below with the two videos and the two print articles. Then complete the assignment.
