About

Corrientes Latinas / Latin Currents is presented by the Inter-Latin American Artists Collaborative: Jose Manuel Cruz, Lety Alvarez, Cornelio Campos, Luis MacKinney, Antonio Alanís, Peter Marín, and Pepe Caudillo. During a conversation this spring, the group asked themselves: "What is Latin Art? What barriers does Latin Art face locally and nationally? How well known are Black and Brown artists in Raleigh and North Carolina? What are we doing for the next generation of Brown, Black, and Immigrant Artists? What can we do to provide the same opportunities to all art creators?"

This exhibition is their first answer to these questions. In order to engage as many people as possible, multiple iterations of the exhibition are presented at three sites simultaneously: Artspace, Raleigh, NC; Diamante, Raleigh, NC; and The Smelt Art Gallery, Pittsboro, NC.

Exhibition brochures are available in Spanish and English. Corrientes Latinas / Latin Currents is on exhibition through October 9.
