516 ARTS announces Latina/o Visual Imaginary: Intersection of Word & Image, an exhibition focusing on the connectedness between contemporary Latino arts and literature, their influence on intercultural experiences and their significance as expressions of human values within an historical and social context. Guest Curator Dr. Holly Barnet-Sanchez, says, “The relationships between the visual, literary and performing arts are especially close and intertwined within Latino communities across the country. Many visual artists are also writers, musicians, performance artists and actors. This project will explore the role of narrative as visual, verbal and textual—within the lived Latino/a experience.” The exhibition features installations by special guest artists Amalia Mesa-Bains and Pepón Osorio, and a group of emerging and established artists including Kai Margarida-Ramírez de Arellano, Elena Baca, Yreina Cervantez, Santos Contreras, Spain Rodriguez, and Viva Paredes. The exhibition is a central part of the larger collaboration titled Latino/a Imaginary, in conjunction with Latino Literary Imagination: East Coast/South West Dialogue on Narrative Voices and the Spoken Word, a bi-regional conference in New Jersey with Rutgers University, and in Albuquerque (April 15–16, 2011)
