The Bennetts directed and The Front produced “Under Her Skin,” a series of six short films profiling six women visual artists who are different from each other in every way but their talent. I caught the premiere screening at New York’s Roxy Hotel Cinema recently and can’t wait for you to see them, too....
Karen Vidángos has always had a passion for the arts, but as a Latina she rarely saw herself represented in the cultural institutions she visited. So she decided to create an Instagram account to share her own photos, which quickly grew into a collaborative movement of Latinxs in museums all over the country.

Karen recently graduated from the George Washington...

  "Vampira is dripping blood and joy. Her face dripping carnage, her robes splattered, and her hands distorted, as she leads you into her world where you are digested into a world of meditative art." If that was the first paragraph of any pre-Halloween read, we would have been ready to settle into our reading nooks all weekend. But when it turns out to be the invitation to a Saturday night in the Bushwick art studio of artist Michael Alan, featuring artist Jadda Cat's one-woman performance VAMPIRA...

From the influence of Shakira and Sandra Cisneros, to Gina Rodriguez and Lin-Manuel Miranda, the cultural diversity of musicians, authors, actors and visual artists with Latin heritage is staggering and often underappreciated. Of course, Latin culture is as amorphorous and dynamic as the people within it, and the New Latin Wave festival in Brooklyn is aiming to bring contemporary Latinx creativity to a wider audience.  New Latin Wave...
If you travel in the NYC subway, you may have seen Jilly Ballistic’s work before. Strategically placed black and white images of WWII soldiers or civilians in gas masks pop up behind subway benches or on top of modern advertisements, giving the viewer the uneasy feeling that this historical image is hitting a little too close to our potential reality right now. While Ballistic (not her real name) who remains anonymous has been doing this for over six years, and is featured in the new...
