Accompanying the artist’s first retrospective exhibition, Teddy Sandoval and the Butch Gardens School of Art examines the work of the inventive yet overlooked artist Teddy Sandoval. A central figure in Los Angeles’s queer and Chicanx artistic circles, Sandoval produced subversive and playful artworks in a range of media that explored the codes of gender and sexuality—particularly transforming conceptions of masculinity.

This expansive publication surveys Sandoval’s work alongside other queer, Latinx and Latin American artists whose practices profoundly resonate. The expansive catalog features essays by C. Ondine Chavoya, David Evans Frantz, Raquel Gutiérrez and Mari Rodriguez Binnie, as well as biographical entries on additional artists featured in the exhibition, among them Félix Ángel, Myrna Báez, Álvaro Barrios, Ester Hernández, Hudinilson Jr., Antonio Lopez, María Martínez-Cañas, Marisol and Joey Terrill.
