Fellow Artists: In Support of The 2022 New York Latin American Art Triennial

Imagine an art event with the magnitude and caliber of most of the now prestigious and established NYC artworld exhibiting events, and yet this event remains on the fringes of the contemporary art establishment. We are asking you to change that and help NYLAAT become part of the big leagues, with your backing contribution or by spreading the word.


The New York Latin American Art Triennial (NYLAAT) was stablished by the Bronx Hispanic Festival (BHF) in 2008, under the name Bronx Latin American Art Biennial. It was co-founded by artists/curators Luis Stephenberg and Alexis Mendoza. In 2019, the event moved to a triennial format and took its current name, New York Latin American Art Triennial.

The broad range of Triennial artists have included representation from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela. The New York Latin American Art Triennial is based in New York City, and it frequently partnered with galleries, museums and local arts and educational organizations to present contemporary art within the city's cultural context, featuring works that range from photography to art installations, from performance art to sculpture. Partner institutions have included: the Bronx Museum of the Arts, the Bronx Music Heritage Center, Hebrew Home Riverdale, Taller Boricua, Lehman College, Boricua College Art Gallery, BronxArtSpace,[4] Longwood Art Gallery at Hostos Community College,[5][6] Andrew Freedman Home, Poe Park Visitors Center Gallery, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, Loisaida Center and Rio Gallery. NYLAAT has showcased the work of hundreds of artists whose works have touch on themes important to the community such as migration, women's rights and other issues of social justice. For the 2016 edition Chief Curator Alexis Mendoza and Triennial Director Luis Stephenberg invited Associate Curators Ismael Checo, Miguel Lescano, Yarisa Colón and Josue Guarionex Colón to be part of the curatorial committee.
