TRANSActions: Contemporary Latin American and Latino Art
Edited by Stephanie Hanor. Foreword by Hugh M. Davies
In a "post-Latin American" age, Latin American art has taken a postmodern tack, mindful of borders and identity politics but not determined by them. Many of the 42 artists featured here, including Francis Alÿs, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Daniel J. Martinez, Alfredo Jaar, Vik Muniz, Damián Ortega and Gabriel Orozco, infuse their work with social commentary from local and global perspectives, exploring and parodying cultural locations and identities even as they uphold and transgress them.
All of them share an interest--beyond those borders--in revitalizing existing artistic language and forms.
