Our Mission

The U.S. Latinx Art Forum champions artists and arts professionals engaged in research, studio practice, pedagogy, and writing. We generate and support initiatives that advance the vitality of Latinx art through an intergenerational network that spans academia, art institutions, and collections.

USLAF uses the term “Latinx” as a political project rather than to imply a fixed or homogeneous identity. By invoking this term, we seek to be inclusive of a broad range of communities, identities, and their intersections. In particular, we acknowledge the “x”’s political foundations with queer activists, and recognize the urgency of supporting the work of Black and Indigenous members in our pan-ethnic community.
