Description:
The 1974 "Los Four" exhibition at the L.A. County Museum of Art received a scathing review in the L.A. Times from art critic William Wilson. The critic argued that the Los Four artists Frank Romero, Gilber Lujan, Carlos Almaraz, and Roberto de la Rocha could not legitimately represent a Chicano street style. Wilson wrote that the four educated artists, "by the very act of leaving the barrio, ceased to be authentic folk artists." Romero defends the exhibition in this interview with Jeffrey Rangels.
