Noting that the Spanish name for Philadelphia, Filadelfia, is similar in spelling and sound but implies a foreign perspective, this exhibition highlights the views of a select group of Latino artists who live in the city. Through installation, sculpture, video, photography, and relational aesthetics, these artists examine their connections to places and objects, social markers and urban environments, the nature and relationship of power in society, and the role of history and migration in shaping identity. Informed and formed by their distinct histories and experiences, these artists share their vision and offer us New Perspectives.
