Los Latinos @ The 2016 Art Basel in Miami



The 2016 Art Basel season is in full swing and once again Latin American artists are shinning bright in the sunny city of Miami. But this year, the work of many of our most extraordinary Latino artists will stay on our walls way after the the last drop frozen of call-at-cab at WetWillies.

These masterpieces definitely define the individuality of our cultura through the ages, with a touch of modern. The artists aren’t just creating artwork that’s visually impactful to the trendy Basel goers, they’re creating work that defies personal or geographic borders without forgetting the traditions that colored their own world view, and collectors, museums, and gallery curators are all taking notice.

Latin American artists can be found throughout Art Basel at major galleries. Galerie Lelong represents the incredible work of the late, brutally unflinching late artist Ana Mendieta as well as the canvas contorting feminist Zilia Sanchez and the perceptive Alfredo Jaar. These artists could not be more different. yet the reaction to their work has been immediate and consistent.

Mexican GE Galería features 16 Cuban Artists in Primera Revancha. Curated by Omar-Pascual Castillo, Ariel Cabrera’s primal sensual series of old and water colors sit comfortable across from Geandy Pavon’s playful political paintings, which are just to the left of Ernesto Pujol’s religious large format photographs.

Aluna Art Foundation featured Beatriz Cortez’s “Fortune Teller Machine,” which prints out a fortune with the press of a button. This cotorra inspired display is one of our favorites! Chequa:

La máquina de la fortuna or The Fortune Teller Machine by Beatriz Cortez is an interactive sculpture elaborated in collaboration with the Kaqchikel Maya collective Kaqjay Moloj

The Pérez Art Museum of Miami, known as PAMM, has quickly become one of the hippest museums in the States. But it’s the fact that they are of Miami and not in spite of Miami that their exhibits are one hit after the other. They smartly anticipated who would be two of the most compelling artists at Basel this season.

If you are in Miami, be sure to stop by and enjoy the work of our creative-at time peculiar in a truly good way- Latino artists.

Eva Longoria, J.Lo, America Ferrera Join Over 200 Artists in a GOTV Call To Action To Latinx Communities



The 2020 elections have stimulated all social platforms to mobilize American participation in the November elections.

The power of the Latinx Vote, in particular, has been a topic of many conversations across many polling sites and major news networks.

For the Global Citizen movement, the goal has been to raise voter awareness of the importance of defeating Donald Trump in the elections and celebrate democracy through participation.

At a special event last Thursday, the movement invited Latinx celebrities to share important issues and their pride in voting.

Under the title, Every Vote Counts: A Celebration of Democracy, actors Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Wilmer Valderrama, and Salma Hayek joined other Latinx to share a message about the importance of the vote.

The digital event was conceived as a tribute and celebration of voting through cultural manifestations such as music, dance, art, and dialogue. It invited artists, musicians, performers, and community leaders to raise the power of civic action and “celebrate the value of every single citizen’s right to vote.”

Knowing that in this election Latinos in the United States are expected to represent the nation’s largest demographic minority in a presidential election for the first time — some 32 million Latinos are eligible to vote — the event directed its attention to these voters.

Salma Hayek, a Mexican-American, expressed her excitement at being part of these numbers.

“I voted because I believe in democracy,” she said. “I voted because I care for the future of our children. I voted because I am proud, and I support my community.”

Maria Hinojosa, the host of NPR Latino USA, highlighted the impact these 32 million voters can have on the election and told viewers that “democracy is not a noun; it’s a verb.”

For her part, Jennifer Lopez, who is Puerto Rican American, agreed on the importance of participation.

“I especially want the Latino community to understand their power, and to make their voices heard, to get loud,” she said.

Orange Is The New Black Season 6 Release Date – Pero…Will Daya Return!?



When can we expect it?

New episodes will officially be available on Netflix starting July 27, 2018!

Production seemingly wrapped on season six in mid-February, with the show’s stars sharing updates and behind-the-scenes photos on Twitter- We Peeped!


So, who’s coming back to the cast?

We certainly know of 10 inmates that have to be back and they are the ones left in the converted bunker in Litchfield at the end of season five. They are: Frieda (Dale Soules), Suzanne (Uzo Aduba), Cindy (Adrienne C Moore), Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Red (Kate Mulgrew), Piper (Taylor Schilling), Alex (Laura Prepon), Nicky, Gloria (Selenis Leyva) and Blanca (Laura Gomez)…but what about Daya plaued by Domincan-American actress Dascha Polanco?

Well, while season five may not have had a major inmate death like Poussey in season four, there were still the notable deaths of Piscatella (Brad William Henke) in the season finale, while fellow officer Humphrey (Michael Torpey) was also killed off, not from Daya shooting him in the leg, but from Kukudio (Emily Althaus) blowing oxygen bubbles into his IV.

The last we saw of Daya, she had turned herself in for shooting Humphreys, and the actress is certainly not telling if she’s in season six. “Daya’s on her own; she just committed a crime [and] obviously that will be punished. You might not see her ever again,” she told USA Today in a recent interview.
