El Museo del Barrio And Partners Announce Carlos Martiel Winner Of The Maestro Dobel Latinx Art Prize

September 13, 2023

El Museo del Barrio and Maestro Dobel® Tequila, creator of the world’s first Cristalino from 11th-generation tequila maker Juan Dobel are proud to announce Carlos Martiel as the recipient of the inaugural Maestro Dobel Latinx Art Prize.

The bi-annual prize, created to raise awareness and amplify the cultural production of Latinx artists, a segment that has historically been underrepresented in the art world at large, awards Carlos Martiel a $50,000 grant and a showcase in El Museo del Barrio’s Room 110 multidisciplinary space, which will be unveiled in Spring 2024.

After reviewing a wide range of nominees submitted by leading curators and experts across the United States based on predetermined criteria established by El Museo, the jury committee – comprised of Cesar Garcia, founder, director, and chief curator of The Mistake Room in Los Angeles, Mari Carmen Ramirez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Alejandra Martinez, Creative Director of Maestro Dobel Artpothecary and founder of Anonimo Colectivo and Patrick Charpenel, Executive Director of El Museo del Barrio – deliberated and selected Carlos Martiel from a shortlist of talented Latinx artists. 

Carlos Martiel was also celebrated at El Museo’s Gala, which took place last week at The Plaza in New York City.


The evening also honored the artist Coco Fusco for Excellence in the Arts and Juan Beckmann for Outstanding Patron of the Arts.
