La Revista magazine launch poster
Art and Public Policy graduate Antonieta Landa (2022) will launch La Revista, the Chilean Creatures Magazine at Mil Mundos Bookstore on Tuesday 6/28 at Mil Mundos Bookstore. La Revista is a magazine that aims to be a platform for Chilean artists and creatives working or showing their work in the United States. The work aims to explore and complicate the idea of a static identity and how it expresses itself in artistic expressions outside of its original territory. The project is supported by Latinx Project NYU through the Public Humanities Fellowship
About La Revista:
“Our magazine is a platform for Chilean artists and creatives working and/or showing their work in the United States. Why should we be bound by one identity? This platform aims to explore and complicate the idea of identity and how it manifests outside of its home territory.
Although we don’t have many answers, we wonder how a work can exist and perform in one country, how to speak to new audiences, and how identity can be affected when the work moves from one country to another. one country to another.
About lengua, in addition to being a system of living signs, language is also a cultural representation. So we made Spanglish our official form of expression. Hold your caballos, everything will be understandable for an English-only audience, but we just don’t want a binary system that separates the language into English and Spanish, but rather a combination that represents the migrant condition of belonging to two places, of identifying with two geographies and highlighting its beauty and complexity.
We strongly believe that the Latin community needs to strengthen its representation in the American artistic landscape, but at the same time we believe that our diversity is part of our strength, the rich tapestry that is Latin culture must be represented with each of their colorful threats if we are to be a contribution to the melting pot that is the United States of America.”
