In 1968, a group of students in San Francisco founded the art and architecture collective Ant Farm. In the monumental installation, Cadillac Ranch, the group planted ten midcentury Cadillacs nose-first in the ground. Like many of their works, it both critiques and embraces consumer culture, positioning the rise and fall of the American automobile tailfin as both an icon of national optimism and a symbol of excess.
Despite facing barriers to art education, women artists in 19th-century Mexico played an important role in bridging tradition and modernity. Painters like Eulalia Lucio balanced European conventions with national identity in her still-life paintings, such as Objects of the Hunt, which blends the traditionally feminine space of a parlor with masculine hunting accessories.
