Latinx from the NEHMA Collection

Traditionally, identity is formulated via a process of exclusion. It is not about who you are; it is about who you are not. "Latinx" proposes inclusivity as the point of departure, open to fluid and diverse factors formulating identity. Quests for definitions and exclusivity in the 20th century appear antiquated against the reality of cultural exchange in the 21st century. The works in "Latinx" convey the human capacity for ingenuity and cultural negotiation in art, even as labels identify their makers as Cuban or Latina. The viewer is invited to dismiss labels and examine the artworks on their individual merits, to consider the diversity "Latinx" fosters first and foremost.
