Encuentros: Artistic Exchange Between the U.S. and Latin America

Anima (Alma/Soul) by Ana Mendieta

Beginning tomorrow, October 5, the American Art Museum will be hosting a two-day symposium called Encuentros: Artistic Exchange between the U.S. and Latin America. The symposium will examine artistic exchanges between the United States and Latin America, from the late 19th century to the present.

The histories of U.S. and Latin American art have until recently been viewed as largely independent of each other. But as recent exhibitions and scholarship indicate, today there is a growing desire to dissolve the rigid borders that separate the history of art of the United States from that of Latin America. The symposium program is extensive. Talks range from an exploration of 19th century antecedents of hemispheric art historical inquiry to early 20th-century efforts to foster Pan-American union through the visual arts, to more recent examples of American and Latin American exhibitions and exchanges.

The symposium is free and open to the public (but registration is encouraged). But if you can't be here, we will be streaming the talks and discussions live (with an archived version to follow).
