The Center Journal
Call for journal articles. Submissions due: January 31, 2004
From the turn of the century to the present, Puerto Rican artists have pioneered aesthetic movements in the United States. Omitted from mainstream art historical accounts because of their ethnic “otherness,” Puerto Rican visual artists in the United States are subject to critical neglect. This special issue of CENTRO Journal seeks to document the trajectories of Puerto Rican artists within the United States cultural arena. We are interested in artists that work in any visual media, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, video, and the Internet. We welcome papers from all disciplines, as well as papers with an interdisciplinary approach. We encourage contributions that consider the participation of Puerto Rican artists in vanguard 20th century movements, such as social realism, surrealism, pop art, minimalism, conceptualism, and performance, as well as those that highlight artistic contributions to social movements concerning issues such as health, housing, education, the environment, and struggles for social justice. Papers that document the creation of Puerto Rican art galleries and studios in the United States, as well as studies that analyze the critical reception of exhibitions of Puerto Rican art in the U.S., are desired. Comparative studies between mainland and island-based artists or between Puerto Rican artists and artists of African American, Caribbean, and Latin American descent are welcome. Cross-disciplinary studies that document connections between Puerto Rican visual artists, musicians, and writers in the United States will also be considered. We further seek theoretical papers examining how Puerto Rican identity is projected through the visual arts. Papers should be no longer than 35 double-spaced pages, including notes and references.
