A new exhibition by Bibiana Suárez, a Vincent de Paul Professor of Art, is on display at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.
The collection of paintings, titled "De:Lata (What Gives Us Away)," focuses on the marketing of Latino food products and how their labeling represents Latina female identity. The opening of the exhibition was chosen to coincide with Women’s History Month in March, and Suárez, who was born in Puerto Rico, intends her works to promote a conversation about the place of Latina women in contemporary culture.
"De:Lata" will be on display through July 30 at the museum, located at 3015 W. Division St. in Chicago.
The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture is open Tuesdays through Fridays, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Saturdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. More information on the exhibition
is available online.
