    I picked this up on a whim, and liked it more than I expected to. It's the catalog of a 2004 exhibit from ASU in Phoenix (which I missed, dammit) and has a lot of Good Stuff, very nicely reproduced. One page of a print drew a double-take, the repro of the artist's pencilled sig was so good.Anyway, next best thing to seeing the actual exhibit... I just looked around the web for samples, and basically failed to find any -- but here's link to Laura Alvarez's "Double Agent Sirvienta," my favorite painting in the book. It turns out that DAS is "a spy posing as a maid on both sides of the border, whose narrative has more twists and turns than a Friday night telenovela. Since 1996, Alvarez has created paintings, prints, films, installations, and music about this character and her adventures." Cool beans, guys: http://web.mac.com/lauraalvarez2/iWeb... The art is basically free of political cant -- but the text certainly isn't, and there's an educational appendix that has such ominous features as "Interdisciplinary Transfer Potential". This stuff can be ignored, skimmed -- or savored, if it's your sort of thing -- but the art, which is what counts, is first-rate. The book itself is handsomely-produced, though the binding (a "perfect"-bound large-format paperback) is fragile.
