Exhibition of Photographs of Prominent Latino Americans along with Filmed Interviews

The Brooklyn Museum presents Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: The Latino List a new exhibition of large-format, full-color photographic portraits on view August 19–December 11, 2011.

The exhibition presents the personal stories of some of today’s most influential Latino Americans from the fields of culture, politics, business, and sports. America Ferrera, Gloria Estefan, Pitbull, Eva Longoria, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and Chi-Chi Rodríguez are among the twenty-five subjects featured.

The exhibition will include excerpts from an accompanying documentary film, also called The Latino List, directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders with interviews conducted by Emmy Award–winning journalists Maria Hinojosa and Sandra Guzman. In this film, which will premiere on HBO on September 29, 2011, the people in Greenfield-Sanders’s photographs are seen and heard directly sharing their stories and experiences as Latinos in America. In the manner of The Black List Project, Greenfield-Sanders’s 2008 exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum that offered insights on what it means to be African-American in contemporary society, the portraits and filmed monologues of The Latino List collectively explore the meaning of “Latino” in the twenty-first century and illuminate the richness and diversity of Latino life in America.
