Review 69: Literature and Arts of the Americas, Contemporary Mexican Writing and Arts

October 31, 2004

Features essays, poetry and fiction by writers in the Americas Society’s “Mexico NOW” literature programs “Out of the Labyrinth: Mexican Literature Today” (Nov. 18) and “Bat at Noon:  Remembering Luis Ignacio Helguera” (Nov. 19), among them Homero Aridjis, Carmen Boullosa, Coral Bracho and Carlos Monsiváis. The issue also includes poetry by Luis Ignacio Helguera; and two interviews - one with composers Mario Lavista and Alejandro Escuer, leading figures in the contemporary music scene who performed at the Americas Society this month, and another with visual artist and art promoter Gonzalo Lebrija, whose work appears in the current Americas Society’s exhibition “So Far, So Close.  “The issue celebrates the Mexican genius for humor, criticism, polemic, and perhaps most importantly, continuity in the arts. Poets, artists, essayists, and narrators have all contributed to this mosaic, a resounding affirmation of the Mexican spirit,” writes Review editor Alfred Mac Adam in the Editor’s Note.
