CURATOR STATEMENT

Fantastic Fuerzas/Forces investigates how contemporary artists have integrated comics into their artistic practice. For many Latino artists it is a way to discuss pop cultures mainstream choices that excludes the Latino experience. For others it is a way to discuss Americas mass media manipulation into marginal worlds. A common thread is that they all dive into humor, commerciality, and sociological fronts, resulting in sometimes-confrontational questions regarding our future.
