Abstract: 
Poetry. African American Studies. Peformance Studies. TWERK unveils an identity shaped by popular media and history, code switching and cultural inclusivity. The poems, songs, and myths in this long-awaited first book are as rooted in lyric as in innovation, in Black music as in macaronic satire. TWERK evokes paradox, humor, and vulnerability, and it offers myriad avenues fueled by language, idiom, and vernacular. This book asks only that we imagine America as it has always existed, an Americana beyond the English language.

Fwd: Museums Issue 4 Death to Museums

Location

600 S Crescent Avenue

Date: 
2019
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
Museums Are Dead. They fell victim to torch-bearing mobs, looters, and the vociferous contempt of political and religious groups. But perhaps also through insular pedagogies, inequitable practices, and a lack of representation or transparency, museums contributed to their own demise. In our current social climate, it has become critical that we, as students, teachers, employees and participants of the museum, reflect on our roles within the white marble walls of the establishments we hold dear. The articles in the following pages represent the curiosity, research, perspective and tenacity required to lay the old museum, to rest in order to allow the new museum to thrive. Together we imagine a future for these institutions untethered from the colonial ties that bind them today. We address the difficult histories of the museum whose past has been marred with racism, sexism, classism, and questionable ethics. In this issue, museum practitioners tackle topics such as repatriation and inequitable labor practices through analysis of media and artifacts. Together we imagine the museum not as a lost cause, but as an opportunity to grow, to learn and to change. Long live museums.

Mapmaker Revisited

Catalog Number: 
Book, Badikian
Date: 
1999
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"In Beatriz Badikian's Mapmaker we are witness to the cartographer's presence as much as we are to the maps themselves - maps made of words, images, lines of exile, travel, love and longing, loss and celebration. As we move from poem to poem, reading, there is increasingly apparent the growth and consistency of a voice, a poetic speech that is quite recognizable the author's own. Fluent in two languages, Beatriz Badikian is touching in her quiet accomplishment, her lyrical strength." -- Ralph J. Mills, Jr.

Infinitas Gracias: Contemporary Mexican Votive Painting

Catalog Number: 
Book, Vilchis Roque
Date: 
2004
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
Infinitas Gracias is the first collection of the work of Alfredo Vilchis Roque, one of Mexico's most famous contemporary painters, and his sons. In the tradition of Catholic votives, each painting tells a miraculous tale and gives thanks to the intervening saint. Ablaze with intense color hearkening back to the natural pigment dyes of ancient Mexico, these works portray the kaleidoscope of issues that constitute modern urban existence. With over 200 paintings, from circus adventures to household accidents to adultery, drugs, and prostitution, Infinitas Gracias weaves together a bizarre tapestry of stories, some disturbing, some comical -- all unerringly wrought and profoundly touching.
