After years of attacking from the margins, LUIS CAMNITZER is now, ironically, a bona fide "international artist," whose work has appeared in the Venice Biennial, Documenta 11, the Whitney Biennial, and several Havana Biennials. A professor emeritus at SUNY College at Old Westbury, Camnitzer presently is the pedagogical curator for the Ibere Camargo Foundation in Brazil. He is the author of several books, including Conceptualism in Latin American Art: Didactics of Liberation. He lives in Great Neck, New York. RACHEL WEISS is Professor of Arts Administration and Policy at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is the author of several books, including To Build the Sky: To and From Utopia in the New Cuban Art.
