Shifra M. Goldman was a groundbreaking art historian who pioneered the study of Chicano art. “Tradition and Transformation: Chicana/o Art from the 1970s through the 1990s,” the latest release from CSRC Press, is an illustrated collection of her essays, representing not only Goldman’s influential scholarship on Chicana/o art but also her archival efforts and political activism. Charlene Villaseñor Black, UCLA art history professor and chair of the CSRC Faculty Advisory Committee, edited the collection and wrote the introduction. She notes that the essays are “outstanding examples of social art history, as Goldman demonstrates the entwined connections between art and politics and how social art history can engage with postmodernism, multiculturalism, feminism, and transnationalism.”
