Asco: Elite of the Obscure, A Retrospective, 1972–1987 is the first retrospective to present the wide-ranging work of the Chicano performance and conceptual art group Asco. Asco (1972–1987) began as a tight-knit core group of artists from East Los Angeles composed of Harry Gamboa Jr., Gronk, Willie Herrσn, and Patssi Valdez. Taking their name from the forceful word for disgust and nausea in Spanish, Asco set about through performance, public art, and multimedia to respond to turbulent socio-political periods in Los Angeles and within the larger international context. The art collective remained active until the mid-1980s, contracting and expanding to include artists and performers such as Diane Gamboa, Sean Carrillo, Daniel J. Martinez, and Teddy Sandoval, among others.
