In this issue, you’ll find writing and visual art that challenges the nature of representation itself: what it means to conceive, shape, and share an idea.

This issue also features the first appearance of “Intercambio,” a new section devoted to texts and visual arts by Latin American artists as well as Spanish-to-English and English-to-Spanish translations.
