information about Michoacán and Mexican artists living in the City of Chicago.

Presenters were included the artist, René Arceo, the book editor Francisco Pina
and book essay contributors/authors Julio Rangel and Victor Espinosa.

The prologue was written by Gilberto Cárdenas, assistant provost and director
of the Institute for Latino Studies at The University of Notre Dame.
The three essays about the artist, printmaker and cultural promoter are:
Victor Espinosa, a doctoral candidate in sociology at Northwestern Illinois
University wrote an extended biography about the experiences that shaped
René Arceo, the artist, the artisan. It is a detailed biography which starts
at his birth place (Cojumatlán, México), passing through his seven years
in Guadalajara city and concluding in Chicago where the artist forms himself
professionally. For the last 30 years Chicago has been home and there
Arceo has played an important role in the creation of alternative cultural spaces
such are Galería Ink Works (1984-1987), the Mexican Printmaking Workshop
(1990-1996) and the development of Casa Michoacán Gallery (2003 to present).

The second essay written by Chicago based writer Julio Rangel provides a look
at the historic-aesthetic context and the artist search for subjects and style.
Additionally, he points out the artist’s influences which emanate from
famous Mexican printmaker J. G. Posada (1852-1913),
the Popular Graphics Workshop (1937-1960). Likewise, he deals with influences
on him from the country where he has lived over three decades
as well as the artist’s spirit of perseverance and cultural identity.

The final essay, written by director of the Hispanic Research Center
at Arizona State University, deals with the artists context in the USA
and more particularly with the Chicano art experience.
He addresses the artist’s coincidences, similarities and artistic differences
with Chicano historic and artistic experiences. Keller concludes
identifying Arceo as a hybrid defined by the Michoacano-Chicano experience.

The 150-page book and 12 x 9.5 inch format includes more than 160 images
in color and B/W which illustrate the three essays.

y vivencias que fueron dando forma a René Arceo,
el artesano, el artista. Es una biografía detallada que inicia desde su lugar
de origen en Cojumatlán de Regules, Michoacán, pasando por Guadalajara
donde vivió por siete anos y concluyendo en Chicago en donde se forma

por más de 25 anos. Es ahí también donde juega un papel importante
