Justin Favela: Fantasía/Fantasy, A Decade of Practice 2011-2021 documents ten formative years of Favela's vibrant and varied art practice, which includes painting, sculpture, installation, curation, and the groundbreaking art and culture podcast Latinos Who Lunch.
The book features over 300 pages of content, including never before published images and materials from Favela's archive, new essays by Latinos Who Lunch co-host & art historian Emmanuel Ortega (aka Babelito!) and LGBTQ & Latino/a studies scholar Erika Abad, as well as interviews with artists, curators, collaborators, and family & friends who have played important roles in the artist's practice.
Produced with attention to craft and detail, Justin Favela: Fantasía/Fantasy, A Decade of Practice 2011-2021 is printed on newsprint as a nod to the everyday materials Favela uses in his works. Measuring 8"x9", the book also includes special sections with illustrations by designer Edith Valle printed in vibrant colors on a risograph printer, and is bound with an exposed smyth-sewn binding inside a custom hand-made cover.
Justin Favela: Fantasía/Fantasy, A Decade of Practice 2011-2021 is produced, edited, and designed by Group Project in collaboration with Edith Valle and published by Riso Riso.
