Product Description:
Latino Artists: Pushing Artistic Boundaries Video (VHS/DVD). The first part of this program introduces the founding members of the visual artists/performance group Asco (Spanish for disgust). Formed as a reaction to the anger and despair they felt as Latin American outcasts in their own country, this group of young artists turned their nihilism into artistic activism with the production of paintings, magazines, videos, street performances, and photographs that mocked their despair. The second part of this program visits the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe, founded by playwright Miguel Pinero and Professor Miguel Algarin, in the heart of the Lower East Side of Manhattan. On the Cafe's stage, poets on the cutting edge gather to read from their works. The program 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. (30 minutes.) Art History, Art and Photography. 1994
