I am very pleased to announce my inclusion in and the release of Relational Undercurrents, a book published by Duke press that accompanies an exhibition curated by Tatiana Flores for the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, which forms part of the Getty Foundation’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. This initiative examines the artistic legacy of Latin America and U.S. Latinos through a series of exhibitions and related programs. This exhibition catalog and volume edited by Flores and Michelle Ann Stephens calls attention to the artistic production of the Caribbean islands and their diasporas, challenging the conventional geographic and conceptual boundaries of Latin America.
This 352 page book includes 200 color plates and essays by the editors as well contributing essays by Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, Antonio Eligio Fernandez, Nicholas Laughlin, Nelson Maldonado-Torres, Jerry Philogene and Laura Roulet.
THE EXHIBITION IS EXTENDED THROUGH FEBRUARY 25, 2018.
