Latino Art & Culture: From the Series "America Past and Present." [Multimedia Resource Kit.]
National Museum of American Art, Washington, DC.
This resource kit contains a 26-minute video, close-captioned and subtitled in Spanish, a 68-page bilingual study guide, 10 color reproductions of paintings, and 14 slides. The video program, "Latino Voices: Artists and Community," features the work of seven contemporary Latino artists living in the United States. Through personal narrative, these artists touch on a range of experiences. The artists talk about the nature of family nurturing and intergenerational relationships; the importance of spontaneity and creativity; the reliance on narrative storytelling and listening skills; the influence of cultural identity, political realities, and human nature; and the importance of integrating everyday objects and experiences into a strong expression of self. The video looks at creative expressions that range from painting and weaving traditions in the Southwest to contemporary installations, documentary photographs, conceptual art, and sculptural assemblages. The artists featured are Carmen Lomas Garza, Agueda Martinez, John Valadez, Pepon Osorio, Joseph Rodriquez, Maria Castagliola, and Maria Brito. (MM)
