Hyphenated Americans Virtual Exhibit Tour
This powerful exhibit, curated by LUNA co-founder Katie Avila Loughmiller, composed of artists and friends of LUNA (Latinas Unidas en las Artes), explores what it means to be Latinx in the United States. Each piece is a personal representation of identity and culture through the eyes of the artist, demonstrating that there is no one-size-fits-all description for the Latinx population. The exhibit faces the struggle and balance between finding camaraderie and community in the similarities between different Latinx cultures, and the fight against unique identities within the Latinx culture that are being erased.

About LUNA:
Latinas Unidas en las Artes (LUNA) began after an honest conversation between co-founders Katie Avila Loughmiller and Gabriela Riveros. Passionate about increasing Latinx representation in Milwaukee art organizations, they decided to carve out space in this city’s art scene. Together they began to build a group of artists that has now become a collective with over 30 members. Since 2017, LUNA has curated a multitude of exhibitions, community events, and elevated the platform for Latinx artists in our community. Most recently LUNA, has been selected into this year's Pop-UP MKE program.

Los Rostros Ocultos Virtual Exhibit Tour with Artist Commentary
Latino Arts, Inc. invites you to view our latest exhibit Los Rostros Ocultos | The Hidden Faces by Angelica Contreras in this Exhibit Tour! Throughout the tour, Contreras talks about her work and how the relationships between tradition, identity, and pop culture are all fused into her pieces.

Growing up in the United States and Mexico provided her a rich palette of imagery, as well as that from other cultures. As in most of her work, there is an element of nostalgia present in its layers, sometimes reminiscing about childhood or adolescence or even a certain culture and its traditions.

The use of collaged material such as origami paper, magazine, and comic book cut-outs, to name a few, provide a palette of colors and textures for the subject's surroundings. As these pieces are worked, the patterns and colors of the printed material come together in a sort of puzzle in which the painted figures emerge.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Angelica Contreras was born in Whittier, California and moved to Guadalajara, Jalisco at an early age. There, she began studying printmaking at the Instituto Cabañas as well as in other local artist workshops. Later on, she attended the University of Guadalajara, receiving a B.A. in art in 2008 and a Masters in Art Education in 2016. Her artwork has been shown in exhibitions in Mexico and in the U.S.. She is a member of Colectivo Synapsis, a group of Latino artists that focus on social justice projects that impact communities in Southeastern Wisconsin. She currently lives and works in Madison, WI, where she continues to create and showcase her art.
