Welcome to our C& América Latina print issues. Together, the online platform and the print issues represent and embody different ways of narrating the story of contemporary art at the meeting points between Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa.
This second C&AL print issue reflects on little discussed biographies and practices such as the Afro-Mexican modern painter José Antonio Gómez Rosas. It also features projects from Martinican and Brazilian perspectives and talks to Barbadian artist Alberta Whittle.
This first print issue examines the “disappearance of the black” of the Argentine identity: the artist Adriana Bustos talks about her project “The Return of the Repressed”. Lorena Vicini talks to Brazilian artist Anita Ekman about her artistic practice of examining Afro-indigenous identities. Curator Aldeide Delgado takes a look at recent exhibitions of contemporary Cuban art and asks critical questions. And the artist Fabio Melecio Palacios tells us about his interpretation of Afro-Colombian traditions.
