Neo-Latino Artists exhibit at ArtSpace 88 Gallery
For over a decade, the Neo-Latino Artists Collective, founded in Jersey City, New Jersey, has showcased art works by highly-accomplished professional Latino/a artists from across the United States, whose insightful imagery emphasizes the richness of Latino culture around the world. The core group is comprised of 21 active members that have exhibited in art centers, galleries, universities and museums across the United States from 2003 to the present. Thus, the Neo-Latinos are recognized art historically as the first and longest-lasting major art movement of the 21st Century.
Running from September 1 – September 27, 2018 at ArtSpace 88 Gallery, located at 46 East Front Street, Keyport, NJ 07735, the #NOWALL@ALL exhibition stands as the latest educational and thought-provoking exhibit by the group. Free and open to the public, the artists’ reception is scheduled for Friday, September 14 from 6-9 p.m. with a Gallery Talk from 7:00-7:30 p.m. The exhibit was curated by Olga M. Bautista and co-founder Raúl Villarreal, who named the group in 2003. The #NOWALL@ALL exhibition features art works by the following Neo-Latino artists: Hugo X. Bastidas, Olga M. Bautista, Monica S. Camin, Angélica Muñoz Castaño, Ricardo Fonseca, Alexis Mendoza, Elizabeth Jiménez Montelongo, Lisette Morel, Gabriel Navar, George Rivera, José Rodeiro, Luis Stephenberg Alers, Nicola Stewart, Raúl Villarreal and invited artist Lenny Campos. This diverse and talented consort of artists represent the following countries: Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Portugal and Puerto Rico.
This critical show is a profound and perceptive artistic response to the current political climate not only in the United States but also in Europe and other places where immigrants and refugees are dehumanized and cruelly victimized. The exhibit deals with issues of immigration, border crossing(s), as well as the proposed continuous 2,000-mile-long WALL (from Galveston, Texas to San Diego, California) physically separating Mexico and all of Latin America from the United States.
