Xican-a.o.x. Body centers political and creative resistance of Xicanx artists from 1968 to the present. This publication presents new histories of Xicanx art, illustrating how artists foreground the Brown body to explore, expand, and complicate conceptions linked to Chicanx, Latinx, and Xicanx experiences.

Offering new insights into more than 50 years of Xicanx art, Xican-a.o.x. Body examines influential works by some 70 artists who highlight the Brown body as a site of resistance, creating artistic communities that push against systemic racism and the exclusionary practices of mainstream art institutions. Thematic essays by renowned scholars address the ways in which Xicanx art lies at the intersection of the politics of identity, race and class, and interrogate questions of “high” and “low” culture.
