The Afrodescendant Woman in Latin American Diasporic Visual Art

Rosita Scerbo

By studying multiple cultural expressions of Blackness throughout different regions of the Americas, the chapters of this book consider the relationship that social and historical processes such as sovereignty and colonialism have on cultural productions made by and about Black Latina women.

Rosita Scerbo analyzes a range of power dynamics as represented in different artistic media of the Afro-Latinx community including photography, muralism, performance, paintings, and digital art. The book acknowledges that racial and gender equity cannot exist without Intersectionality and that is why the entirety of the chapters will focus on cultural and visual productions exclusively created by Afrodescendant women. The black female artists examined in this study are not only pioneers in their respective fields but have also established a racially and gender inclusive artistic practice that brought forward a critical perspective on Afro-Latin America with a focus on Afrodescendant women and their innumerable contributions to society and culture.

The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, gender studies, women's studies, Latin American studies, African diaspora studies, and race and ethnic studies.
