REED: INSURGENT MEXICO (Paul Leduc, 1971, Mexico, 110 min); and BLOOD OF THE CONDOR (Jorge Sanjines, 1979, Bolivia, 72 min). [REVIEWING HISTORIES: SELECTIONS FROM NEW LATIN AMERICAN CINEMA, organized by Steve Gallagher and guest-curated by Coco Fusco, with accompanying book of essays. Unexpectedly, the 224-page book fills a void in the field of Latin American film studies and Latin American studies departments across the US. Consequently, it soon sells out its first (and only) printing. Nine years later requests for the book are still coming in. — E.C.]

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
