For as much as multi-cultural America is seen as heading towards a uni-cultural blend, there are many groups of Americans who still live a dual life. Bi-Lingual presents the work of African American and Latino artists who speak to this duality in art-making and identity utilizing verbal, physical and visual language.
Each artist in Bi-Lingual is engaged in the struggle between expressing his or her visual lexicon in the contemporary art setting, while remaining relevant in his or her respective cultural communities.
Bi-Lingual provides the forum for these worlds to converge.
