2022 Silver Medal Winner International Latino Book Awards. Beyond the Gallery won a Silver Medal in the International Latino Book Awards: Insights from the ILBA judges, 'Yes, definitely a must for a reading list in a college-level Chicano/Latino Culture class.' "As a publication of essays, Beyond the Gallery has taken on the challenging task of threading together all of these notions of seeing in different forms. The text is a beacon that acknowledges the complexity of places and the people that inhabit them; it serves as a call to possibility and probability within art-making and within the stories that are overseen. In Laury Leite’s “Museos Invisibles/Invisible Museums,” readers are taken on an anecdotal voyage seeking the myth of genesis in the works of Giorgione, the Italian painter of the High Renaissance Venetian school. Meanwhile, Carlos Andrés Torres transports the reader to the Serranía of Chiribiquete, the Jaguar-men secret gallery, in his essay “Las pinturas del hombre jaguar/The Paintings of the Jaguar-Men.” Both essays transport readers to these vivid places and open a series of questions that create a domino effect toward other issues. The essays in Beyond the Gallery do more than focus on the themes they seek to explore—they also branch out in complex ways that take time to grasp. The essays expand Hispanic art criticism into the Canadian imaginary by touching on the importance of objects (ephemeral or permanent, old or new, anecdotal or factual), which offers a rich selection of histories. Readers can find value in the knowledge of these writers, in being invited into ways of knowing that are unfamiliar in North America. The question remains: What does the discipline of Canadian literature have to offer these writers in return?" Cinthia Arias Auz, Visual Arts News. "The Spirit of Nuit Blanche is alive in this collection and it encourages readers to look to the classics but also to the unexpected for inspiration." Rachel Hernandes, The Miramichi Reader.
