If you are interested in Latino art (I missed the original posting, are you
looking for only contemporary?) check out an artist named
Coco Fusco. She has done alot of
very interesting performances with what she says deals w/ the 'colonial
condition'. She discusses such issues as racism, gender inequalities and
stereotypes, and other ideas that to this affect (which usually stem back to
issues that eurocentric colonization have caused in western civilizations)
If I recall correctly, she did a
collaborative performance w/ Guillermo Gomez-Pena... Couple In A Cage.

SUNY New Paltz
