Latin American Art Is American Art.

Abstraction, conceptualism, the politics of identity: these are the territories of contemporary art in America. Not surprisingly, these concerns belong to artists of many backgrounds with diverse personal histories. Contemporary Latin American Art focuses on the ways Latino artists have carved out a place within the mainstream of art history or have positioned themselves against it. Figures like Diego Rivera, Wifredo Lam, and José Clemente Orozco have become highly visible, but countless others from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Jamaica, Ecuador and elsewhere have contributed to the complex story of contemporary art. Reflecting aspects of gender, diaspora, poetics, and political commentary, these artists address the reality of life in the 20th and 21st centuries.
