Latinx Art: Artists, Markets, and Politics

by: Arlene Dávila (0)

In Latinx Art Arlene Dávila draws on numerous interviews with artists, dealers, and curators to explore the problem of visualizing Latinx art and artists. Providing an inside and critical look of the global contemporary art market, Dávila's book is at once an introduction to contemporary Latinx art and a call to decolonize the art worlds and practices that erase and whitewash Latinx artists. Dávila shows the importance of race, class, and nationalism in shaping contemporary art markets while providing a path for scrutinizing art and culture institutions and for diversifying the art world.

The Reviews

A much-needed and very welcome analysis of the many obstacles faced by Latinx artists in getting recognition. This book was in a number of best-of-year lists, including those by NY Times art critic Holland Cotter and ArtNews Magazine, and with good reason.

This book is complementary to "My Journey into the Realm of Latino Art" Major museums are just beginning to increase their holdings of Latinx ArtRecent auctions have seen substantial increases in the prices obtained for Latinx art.

An up to date view of the Latinx art world

Another woke word "LantinX". Latinos dont like to be called Latinx.
