Curated by CSUNâ€™s Art History Professor Mario Ontiveros, this exhibition focuses on eight Los Angeles-based artists who reconfigure the genre of self-portraiture. Utilizing their body, their likeness, and/or the intimately personal, the artists encourage an investigation into representation that lingers somewhere between its construction in response to material, psychic, and sociopolitical conditions and those personas that one imagines, shuns and/or desires. Artists include Michael Alvarez, Yreina Cervantez, Christina FernÃ¡ndez, Harry Gamboa Jr., Sandra de la Loza, Shizu Salamando, Ana Serrano and Mario Ybarra Jr. A full color catalog on the exhibition will be available for purchase.
Gallery and gift store hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., and on Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m. For more information, call CSUNâ€™s Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.
We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century
