Explore the work of one Hispanic artist or group of artists, for example Diego
Rivera, Jose Orozco, and David Alfaro, from the 20th century to describe how their
work made an impact in Latin America. What did they contribute? How were they
influenced by the historical moment? How did their work reflect the society they
lived in? How were their aesthetic choices influenced by their surroundings?
You can write about any topic you can relate to the material in this Latino
American and Latino studies class. You can write about artists in the visual arts,
music, film, theater, dance, performance art, or any other art movement that you
can relate to the topics in this class. Previous topics have ranged to Chicano
muralism, the analysis of feminist themes in Frida Kahlo’s work, to Banksy,
Guayasamin, to Bad Bunny.
NO FRIDA KAHLO BIOGRAPHIES!! If you would prefer writing about her
go deeper into her impact on art. Look at her work, her influence and how
the events in her life influenced her work. During her life, she was not well
known as an artist, but mostly as Rivera’s eccentric wife. Analysis of her
work, her influence, etc. are okay.
