It’s been turbulent times at El Museo del Barrio, where they recently cut back on hours and staff and are facing charges of gender discrimination brought by former director Margarita Aguilar. But with their major biennial opening today, all that is put aside to make room for what matters most: the work. La Bienal 2013, titled “Here Is Where We Jump,” brings together 37 emerging Latino and Latin American artists who live and work in the New York City area. The biennial, which launched in 1999 as “The (S) Files,” will also honor Brazil as the show’s guest country and feature artists from that region, including multimedia artist Jonathas de Andrade and fast-rising painter Lucas Arruda, among others. The exhibition is curated by Rocío Aranda-Alvarado and Raúl Zamudio.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m. Starts: June 12. Continues through Jan. 4, 2013
