Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is an integral part of the cultural and artistic landscape of U.S. Latinos. Today’s interpretation of the sacred indigenous tradition has been remixed and recycled into a commercial holiday blending Mexican, Latino, and American pop culture iconography with the spiritual aesthetics of the event’s indigenous and Catholic influences. This collection traces the evolution of Día de los Muertos that emerged from Self Help Graphics, a community-based workshop in Los Angeles and beyond through an exhibition and publication documenting its four-decade history of art, ritual, and celebration.
