This chapter discusses the emergence of a rival sense of nationalism, an “alternative modernity” encouraged by the isthmus’s social and economic transformation, which utilized popular art to challenge the state-sponsored conception of Panama. It shows popular art to be a fluid and diasporic expression that has incorporated brown-skinned people of many different backgrounds as well as European and Asian immigrants who fell under the influence of black proletariat culture.

Keywords:   Panamanian nationalism, Panama, alternative modernity, popular art, black proletariat culture
