Art: Proof That Judy Buck Is More Than Los Angeles Murals.

The MOLAA retrospective features portraits of Bucky, dressed as a patchuca, pouting and snarling, with ruby ​​red lips and tousled hair – images taken by SPARC co-founder Deutsch, photographer and filmmaker. Baka is known as a monumental painter, but this early conceptual work arose from a show that Woman’s Building co-founder Sheila de Bretteville invited her to organize for the space in 1976.

“Las Chicanas: Venas de la Mujer” is now considered the first fully Chican art exhibition in Los Angeles. It features works by Bucky, Isabel Castro, Judit Hernandez, Olga Muniz and Josefina Quesada.

Sheila came up to me and said if we want to do a show with women of color? While, [Chicana] women were not shown separately from men. The idea of ​​separating from the men undermined the movement. I did not care. I mean, I cared about the traffic. But I didn’t care about incredible male chauvinism. My consciousness was rising, partly through my friend Christina [Schlesinger]…

Through the wall painting programs, I knew all these women. We sat down, brainstormed and came up with “Venas de la Mujer,” and we all took on different aspects of the female character. We all got dressed. Judith was a mourning character. Josephine, I think she worked in a factory. Isabel Castro, she became a revolutionary. I have become a papuka. Nobody recognized me. I became my cousin Esther – this is exactly her. At school, I constantly ran away from them. Once I was beaten pretty badly by a patchuca. This show was about this force taking over the façade.

Judy Bucka is surrounded by images that she used in an installation at her 1976 show at the House of the Woman, one of the young members of the clique, nicknamed “Flaca” (left), and the other as a painter as a patchuca.

I did both. I brought Tiny Lokas and Cyclones, there were two clicks, neighbor clicks. They were 14-15 years old, and there was one group of girls, they were inveterate cholas. We made big heart on the wall behind my sculpture “Las Tres Marias” [now in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum]… We put the names of different girls through the veins of our hearts.

Then this show did not bother anyone. Nobody wrote about this. Nobody talked about this. As if it never happened. But recently, more attention has been paid to this.

On a human scale, the triptych depicts patchuca and chola on the sides of the mirror in which the viewer sees himself.

Judy Buck’s 2021 MOLAA’s Las Tres Forever was inspired by her 1976 sculpture, Tres Marias, now in the Smithsonian collection.
