About This Event
This symposium will examine artistic encounters between Latin America and the United States from the nineteenth century to the present. Talks will consider how artists and artworks have crossed the border separating the U.S. and Latin America (defined as Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean), creating new artistic dialogues and influencing each other’s work in meaningful ways. Speakers will include, among others: Valerie Fraser of the University of Essex; Itala Schmelz of the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil; Edward Sullivan of the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University; Katherine Manthorne of the City University of New York Graduate Center; and artist Luis Camnitzer.
"Encuentros: Artistic Exchange between the U.S. and Latin America" is the third of five Terra Symposia on American Art in a Global Context, which are supported by a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. The symposium also will be available for viewing in a simultaneous and, later, an archived webcast. For more information about this event, visit www.americanart.si.edu/research/symposia/2011/
