There was an arts journal-International Quarterly-edited by Van K. Brock that so beautifully attempted to share the concerns and ideas of artists and writers from around the world. Unfortunately this journal has met its demise, but I was lucky enough to have had work included in one of its issues: Faces of the Americas. How absolutely gorgeous this issue was both in terms of its aesthetics and quality. And it was so successful in communicating the huge diversity of people and cultures that comprise the Americas.
The Puerto Rican duo Calle 13 did a music collaboration in Peru and produced Latinoamerica and this visually celebratory video shows-off our diversity. I love it!!!
