    About The Work

    Violence and civil unrest in East LA inspired a number of Asco’s street performances. First Supper (After a Major Riot), was staged four years after the Chicano Moratorium Committee organized an anti-Vietnam rally that ended with police brutality. Curfews were instigated and public gatherings forbidden. Patssi Valdez, Gronk, Harry Gamboa Jr, Willie F. Herron III and Humberto Sandoval ate their meal on a traffic island, surrounded by props including a giant baby Jesus. The event took place on Whittier Boulevard, a main road through East LA, where police had opened fire on the crowd four years before.
