Contemporary Latinx and Latin American Printmakers is comprised of artists from various generations who work in a range of printmaking techniques such as lithographs, woodblock printing, etchings with aquatint, serigraphs, and photogravure. Works by Rodolfo Morales, Juan Dios Mora, and Liliana Porter take on a dreamlike, surrealistic nature in their prints. Juan Dios Mora states that devices he illustrates in his works "show the ingenuity and capability of the characters and their will to survive. The intention is to make a social comment on a culture that frequently must rely on their surroundings to survive. The goal is to portray the symbolism of these devices, which means a lot to each character. Above all, the devices portray the freedom, hope and style of the crafty owners, which will last forever."
Celia Álvarez Muñoz, Ethel Shipton, and Alejandro Diaz focus on text-based works. Álvarez Muñoz's work addresses the dichotomy of living between two cultures. Common themes in her practice include: Catholicism, Mexican American experience, the past versus the present and English versus Spanish language. Work by Pedro Diego Alvarado-Rivera focuses on still life that depict the limitless abundance of the Mexican natural world. Romanticism for the American landscape and the blend of Mexican, American, and indigenous cultures influence the content of Richard Armendariz.
