Remembering Ed Fuentes

Episode 112


This week we are honoring a dear compadre que se nos fue. Ed Fuentes was a cultural journalist and one of the biggest Latinos Who Lunch supporters. Fuentes was a writer and an advocate for Latinx artists on the West Coast and his absence will be felt for a long long time… Rest in power amigo. Our friend and colleague Ed Fuentes talked to us about his career as an advocate for Chicanx arts. Through his blog, Paint this Desert, he was able to highlight the artistic diversity of our communities in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Ed also discusses the perils of being the only Chicano MFA student in a department dominated by white male artists, and the importance that public murals have in the fight for resistance against oppression and gentrification. #podin #supportbrownpodcasts #supportlatinxpodcasts #lwlpod
