The 5th Bronx Latin American Art Biennial: “I am one of those people who…” presents an evolution of styles and techniques practiced by contemporary Latin-American artists living in the Bronx and abroad. Artworks engage personal aspects of the artists’ philosophy and creation process as well as some of today’s social issues such as: migration, women’s rights, political conflicts, and discrimination.

Curated by Alexis Mendoza and Luis Stephenberg, the exhibition reveals the complex and diverse approaches of Latin American artists living inside and outside the United States.
