Summary As co-founder of the Chicano art group ASCO, Gamboa developed such multi-media forms as the "no-movie" and the "fotonovela," which drew attention to the workings of mass culture. In the mid-1980s, working through cable access, Gamboa produced a series of "conceptual dramas" that explored both stereotypical and traditional notions about the Latino family. In these works, collected here for the first time, Gamboa combined the political influences of the Chicano Movement with the narrative excess of film noir, B-movies, and Mexican telenovelas.
