Synopses & Reviews
This in-depth look at Latin American art explores the complexity of this vast and diverse region of the world, focusing on a critical re-reading of the Baroque in Latin America and its use as an important cultural metaphor. The diversity of artists represented -- hailing from South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the United States -- serves to critique and recuperate this concept of the Baroque that has become increasingly cliche and misunderstood. With art by Ruben Ortiz Torres, Miguel Calderon, Rochelle Costi, Arturo Duclos, Carlos Garaica, Meyer Vaisman, Yishai Jusidman, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, La Menna Barreto, and Franco Mondini Ruiz, among others. An important book.
