L'artiste native de Cuba Carmen Herrera (née en 1915) peint depuis plus de sept décennies, mais ce n'est que ces dernières années que la reconnaissance pour son travail a projeté l'artiste vers la notoriété internationale. Ce beau volume offre le premier examen soutenu d'elle, depuis le début de sa carrière en 1948 jusqu'en 1978, et s'étend sur les mondes de l'art de La Havane, de Paris et de New York. Les essais considèrent les premières études de l'artiste à Cuba, son implication dans le Salon des Réalités Nouvelles dans le Paris d'après-guerre et sa sortie révolutionnaire de New York. Puis l'ouvrage situe son travail dans le contexte d'un art d'avant-garde latino-américain plus large. Un essai de Dana Miller considère le travail de New York d'Herrera depuis les années 1950 jusque dans les années 1970, lorsque Herrera arrivait et perfectionnait son style de signature. Des photographies familiales personnelles des archives de Herrera enrichissent le récit, et une chronologie traitant de l'intégralité de sa vie et de sa carrière présente des images documentaires supplémentaires. Plus de quatre-vingts œuvres sont illustrées sous forme de plaques de couleur. Ce livre est la représentation la plus étendue des travaux de Herrera à ce jour. (d'après l'éditeur).

The definitive publication on Cuban-born artist Carmen Herrera's (born 1915) Estructura works, this volume contains new works as well as sketches, plans, installation photographs from the exhibition and an essay by the curator of her recent traveling retrospective, Dana Miller. As three-dimensional extensions of the artist's stark, bright abstract paintings, the Estructuras were envisioned by Herrera in an environmental sense, using the surrounding walls as a part of the composition. These irregularly shaped works technically remain her only monochromes; however, Herrera envisions the white of the wall exposed in the negative space of the sculptures and wall pieces as the second color. Herrera began executing the works in 1969 but abandoned them two years later after the death of her carpenter. These works marked an important moment in Herrera's career, wherein the forms move from drawing to painting and sculpture, and her meticulous sharp edges are physically manifested.

This book focuses on the life and artistic activities of Emilio Sanchez (1921–1999) in New York, and Latin America in the 1940s and 1950s. More specifically, the book will consider Sanchez in the wider context of mid-century Cuban artists, and cross-cultural exchange between New York, Cuba, and the Caribbean. The book reflects on why Sanchez chose to be a mobile observer of the American and Caribbean vernacular at a time when such an approach seemed at odds with the mainstream avant-garde. The book includes a foreword by Dr. Ann Koll, former Executive Director/Curator of the Emilio Sanchez Foundation, and an introduction by Dr. Nathan J. Timpano, University of Miami Department of Art and Art History. This book will be of interest to scholars in modern art, Caribbean studies, architectural history, and Latin American and Hispanic studies.

""On the one hand, the affirmation that Latino art is American art is simply a fact. Latino artists are American by birth, citizenship, residence, education, experience, and even sacrifice-a factor made clear by the large number of Latino artists that have served in the United States armed forces. On the other hand, the statement poses a challenge to the ways in which we traditionally think about what constitutes American art."-E. Carmen RamosIs Latino art an integral part of modern American art? Presenting one hundred major artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America seeks to "recalibrate" enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists-those of Latin American descent and heritage-express their relationship to American art, history, and culture.Highlights include an installation altar by Amalia Mesa-Bains, the "recycled" films of Raphael Montaänez Ortiz, and a 1960 geometric painting by Carmen Herrera. Other notable artists include Olga Albizu, Melesio "Mel" Casas, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Margarita Cabrera, Enrique Chagoya, Teresita Fernâandez, Ken Gonzales-Day, Luis Jimâenez, Ana Mendieta, Pepâon Osorio, Sophie Rivera, Freddy Rodri;guez, and John Valadez, among many others.Author and curator E. Carmen Ramos is the Smithsonian American Art Museum's curator of latino art. She has organized numerous shows, including the fifth biennial at El Museo del Barrio in New York City in 2007.Dr. Tomâas Ybarra-Frausto, the "grandfather" of this subject, and formerly associate director for creativity and culture at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York, has written and published extensively on US/latino cultural issues"--

'The benefit of teaching life skills is that I also changed. If I can make a difference in the life of just one child, I will be happy' When we think about Africa, we often recall pictures of a wild countryside, rivers, forests, deserts, buzzing markets and media stories of poverty, devastation and hunger - a prime continent where branches of human justice are still thin and often absent. Those of us who have made Africa our destination are witness to a different experience as we meet people who charter a life of resilience and construct a social world of their own. Extended family ties stretch far and deep and so do family feuds, political turmoil and the many manifestations of poverty - painting a human canvas on which development programs (including sport-for-development) need to blend in strokes for reciprocal change. The GIZ/YDF program is possibly one of the most significant programs in terms of philosophy, methodology and scope that sheds light on development work as it is embraced, transformed and assimilated into real-life experiences. It is at this embedded level of social uptake that the selected 15 stories in the text and the detailed 45 stories on the CD articulate real-life experiences as told by program participants, peer- educators and YDF partners who took up the responsibility and challenge to change lives for the better. Multiple voices give an expression to the meaning and dynamics of sports-related interventions as they affect individuals within a myriad of social relationships and contexts. The uniqueness of this publication is that it not only captures all these voices to constitute stories from nine African countries, but validates a ripple of impact where context is a prism for seeing and knowing. How do real people see and benefit from a sport-for-development program? How does the North meet the South in partnership and trust? After reading these stories, you will not merely see young boys or girls kicking a ball and appreciate the novel aesthetics, but you will smell the dust and know it is a family and community at play. You will realize that aspirations and expectations are born from a need for entitlement in a field where the pitch is only the beginning of a journey. May this brief encounter do justice to all who shared their lives with such honesty and hope.

Cuales son los arquetipos de belleza en la sociedad actual?, que nos muestran los medios de comunicacion como estereotipos corporales sociales y en que forma influyen en nuestras vidas?, cuales son las imagenes corporales que flotan alrededor de nosotros en las sociedades industriales de consumo de masas? Hablar del cuerpo como construccion sociocultural implica pensar en el cuerpo como objeto, este deja de ser unicamente biologico para convertirse en una realidad representacional. La construccion de una imagen corporal femenina en el siglo XXI se ve influenciada por la moda, la publicidad y la cultura mediatica. La figura femenina se ve asociada a la idea de un cuerpo-objeto libre para ser redisenado a su antojo, pero a la vez sesgado por ciertos patrones esteticos. Entender al cuerpo como signo, como simbolo de la cultura y de la sociedad en la que nos hallamos inmersos nos aproxima a la compresion del mundo que nos envuelve. Finalmente, analizar y comprender la representacion del cuerpo e interpretacion de la imagen corporal femenina nos permite entender al cuerpo disenado como un objeto semiotico desde el que se construyen y emiten diversos y muy variados mensajes."
