The library, as always, yields great inspiration for me and I found myself deep into Frida Kahlo’s surrealism last week. How cool it would have been if Gabriel Garcia Marquez had used she and Diego Rivera’s relationship as a vignette in a long line of ancestral stories in one of his books? This caused me to look deeper into the literature of the Latin American Boom and other authors and poets whose career’s may have been encouraged by the movement. Then, by the help of Free Penny Press, I found out about art.sy and my world was changed.
I took a journey into the world of Latin American art past and present. Join me in this little trip through the Latin American Boom HERE, but more importantly, share your thoughts:
Have you ever read any of these works or seen any of this art. Have you ever felt scared or worried to teach or talk about a particular subject in a particular context? Has responsibility ever held you back from doing, saying or creating something you wanted to?
