Instituto Cervantes of Chicago in collaboration with SPAIN arts & culture presents LATINO/US Cotidiano, a national traveling exhibition and publication representing twelve of the most talented photographic voices working internationally, and capturing the U.S. Latino experience of today. It is a dynamic look at the rapidly changing nature of the Latino experience in America.

This national traveling exhibition, LATINO/US Cotidiano, literally means "everyday life." It is a dynamic look at the rapidly changing nature of the Latino experience in America.
The Hispanic population in the US has reached the 50 million mark, making the Latino community the largest minority in the country for the first time. One out of every six Americans is now of Hispanic origin, an impressive social transformation with enormous political, economic, and cultural consequences. Outdated stereotypes, racial profiles, and past cultural archetypes no longer accurately reflect a nation enriched by a growing and diverse population. But what does it look like today?
To better understand this culturally shifting phenomenon, SPAIN arts & culture commissioned Claudi Carreras, one of the foremost experts on IberoAmerican Latino photography, to research and gather the strongest photographic voices working today on issues of Latino identity.
