2023 Acquisition Considerations A second-generation Los Angeles native, Joey Terrill has critiqued Chicanismo and explored its cultural relationship to homosexuality over a four decade career. Engaged in the nascent Chicano Power and Gay Liberation movements since the early 1970s, Terrill was exposed to diverse, overlapping scenes from a young age, ranging from ASCO’s guerrilla performances to Luis Valdez’s political El Teatro Campesino, correspondence with Ray Johnson to creative exchanges with David Hockney. Terrill’s early work captures intimacies between friends and lovers at the start of the AIDS crisis, in episodic, droll, and confessional images that expand barrio culture’s heternormative notion of La Familia through the distinctive development of queer iconography.
