The poems in J. Michael Martinez's 3rd selection of poetry circle round how the perceived physique involves be allegorically coded with the transhistorical outcomes of an imperial sociopolitical narrative. enticing eighteenth-century Mexican casta work, the morbid lynching postcards of William Horne, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and Martinez's family lineage, Museum of the Americas strains a cultured out of racialized scenes of corporeal extra. Hybrid in shape, Museum of the Americas voices itself in conception, poetry, and artistic nonfiction. all through, Martinez questions how "knowledge" of the physique is geared up via an observer's visible belief of that physique. For Martinez, the corporeal continuously serves as a repository of the human state of affairs, a nexus of tradition. His paintings revives and repurposes the persecuted ethnic physique from the biopolitical appropriations that render it a disposable aesthetic object.
