Contemporary Latin America Art

Art of Latin America Since 1950
In this course we will survey the art of Latin America since 1950. We will study the works of leading Latin American artists active in their native countries and abroad, considering major developments such as the rise of abstraction, conceptualism, and postmodernism. We will also explore significant issues that have shaped the production and reception of the region’s art, such as strategies used by Latin American artists to resist or reinterpret artistic discourses in order to negotiate local and international trends. Readings will be drawn from Jacqueline Barnitz’s Twentieth-Century Art of Latin America, artist's writings, criticism, and art historical scholarship. 3 hrs. lect.
