The Crossing by Luis Cruz Azaceta

Self-representation is central to this section, with the term “Latinx” understood as a sign of both plurality and dissent. It is considered as a construction of identity that references Latin American heritage and ethnicity in the U.S., while also intersecting with African, Indigenous, queer, and trans identities. Symbolic objects and icons, flags, as well as depictions of the human figure are explored in terms of strategies of portraiture, identification, and community. The deconstruction of cultural myths such as the melting pot is addressed in works by David Antonio Cruz, Freddy Rodriguez, Elia Alba, and Nicolás Dumit Estévez, among others.
