Latino Artists: Pushing Artistic Boundaries

VHS
30 minutes
NX512.3 .H57 L371 1995

The frist part of this program introduces the founding members of the visual artists/performance group, Asco. Formed as a reaction to the anger and despair they felt as Latin American outcasts in their own country, this group turned to artistic activism with the production of paintings, magazines, videos, street performances, and photographs. The second part of this program visits the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe, founded by playwright Miguel Pinero and Professor Miguel Algarin, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The Cafe's stage introduces the newest generation of writers who share their work and their vision of identity and cultural duality as Puerto Ricans living in New York.
