Provenance Center is pleased to present the Latin Network for the Visual Arts (LNVA) permanent collection with an opening celebration Sunday, July 29 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. This exhibit offers a collection of 18 pieces in a mix of photography, cut drawings, sculpture, watercolor and paintings by 11 artists representing 9 countries. The exhibit will run from July 29 through August 26, 2012.
Who qualifies as a Latin artist? What exactly is “Latin” art? Few ethnic groups have as diverse a mixture of heritage, ethnicity and “racial” characteristics as those considered to be “Latino” today. And, membership in this group is still argued by many: Must one come from an originally “latin”-centered country of origin? Must one come from a Latin American country? Is Spanish as a language an inherent requirement? To what extent does the influence of colonization by non-Latin nations alter the “true’ Latino flavor of the people and their art? These and other questions have, at times, blurred a more precise classification of Latin art or who is Latin. It is our hope that this art exhibit will present a chance for all to reflect upon the debate as to what exactly is Latin art and, no doubt adding one more interesting facet to the rich visual tapestry we presently enjoy.
