Part of the wild ride of 2022 has been witnessing the continued mainstream exposure—no matter how gradual—for Latinx art. With that has come recognition for, and acknowledgement of, just how consequential Latinx artists of multiple generations have been and continue to be to American art and to contemporary art history in general.
A year ago, I observed that Latinx art had gotten more visibility than ever before. The momentum continued in 2022. Of course, much work still remains to be done, as Latinx art is still woefully under-represented in museums, biennials, and galleries compared to the overall Latinx population in this country.
