07.05.14 | "13 Young Latina Artists Changing the Contemporary Arts Landscape" | by Priscilla Frank, The Huffington Post

Opening excerpt from article
When family tales are passed from generation to generation with no single point of origin, when history fails to document years of pain and struggle, when personal identity becomes too complex to describe in a single sitting, when memory and imagination mingle in the land of dreams, this is where art comes in very handy.  For young Latina artists, art is an invaluable tool to archive the past, understand the present and activate change in the future.

"Mexicanisimo at San Jose Museum of Art"

by Maureen Davidson,

Opening excerpt from article:
The San Jose Museum of Art's new show, Mexicanismo, features works of irony and heartbreak by 13 artists.

The glistening black moustache spirals downward and outward—riotous parentheses for the red-veined drinker’s nose protruding far beyond the shelter of a towering sombrero.

Pop-eyed, dilated, soul-patched and stylishly draped, the 4-foot figure, sculpted impossibly of vividly transparent blown glass, stands with shoulders flung back, belly thrust forward, hands angling up from the wrists, in a “Whaaa—hey, man, I didn’t do it’ gesture.
