  • The 20 artists chosen include both Latino artists and those influenced by Latino culture, with media ranging from painting and sculpture to photography, video, performance and installation. They hail from around the US, and address a wide range of salient issues, many politically charged. While some are originally from South and Latin America and some are, like the curator, of Hispanic Descent, others without Hispanic heritage find artistic inspiration in Latino culture. While the Latino influence will be felt on many levels, both complex and understated, all the artists included share an interest in an issue vital to anyone who lives in the NE GA community today. Not only has the number of Latino residents in the Southeast US has tripled in the last decade, a conservative estimate of the number of Latino residents in Athens-Clarke County is 6%, well above the 1% average for Georgia overall. While the 2000 census officially lists the number of A-CC Latino residents at 7,000, many social workers site 20,000. With this exhibition, ATHICA celebrates and explores the increasingly prevalent influence of Latino culture, felt more than ever in today's food, music, dance, style, and language.
