Latin American art is more relevant today than
ever. In the United States, the burgeoning
population of Latinos—people of Latin
American descent—and consequently the rise
of Spanish (and Spanglish) speakers, Latino
musical genres, literature, and visual arts,
require that we better understand the cultural
origins of these diverse communities. Even
beyond our borders, Latin American countries
continue to exert influence over political and
economic policies, while their artistic traditions
are everyday made more and more accessible
at cultural institutions like art museums and
galleries, which regularly exhibit the work of
Latin American artists. For many of us Latin
America is not an entirely foreign concept, in
fact our knowledge of it is most likely defined
by a particular country, food, music, or artist,
and sadly, it is also sometimes clouded by
cultural stereotypes. What many of us often
overlook, is the diversity of what it means to be
Latin American and Latino.
