Arte No es Vida (Art Is Not Life) is the first comprehensive survey of the vast range of performative actions created over the last four decades by Latinos in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Mexico and Central and South America. Based on the groundbreaking 2008 exhibition at New York's Museo del Barrio, this well designed and generously illustrated volume features work by more than 100 artists--among them Francis Alÿs, Papo Colo, Lygia Clark, Coco Fusco, Guillermo G mez-Pe a, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Alfredo Jaar, Ana Mendieta, Marta Minuj n, Raphael Monta ez Ortiz, Helio Oiticica and Tunga. Both celebratory and scholarly, Arte No es Vida opens with an illustrated chronology of key works arranged by decade and follows with essays that address each region of study in depth. Chapters include New York, California & Puerto Rico and Cuba & Miami , as well as individual investigations of the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Central America, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. This is the first volume to commission general historical overviews on this important strand of Latin American artistic production.
