Taking a novel approach to Latin American modernism, this talk will address how a remarkably mobile generation of artists in Latin America envisioned modern art as a tool for resisting colonialism and celebrating new subjectivities. It describes how artworks and criticism circulated among Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Havana, and Lima through printed media, friendships, and the artists' desire to forge a network among cultural centers in Latin America in the 1920s.
This lecture will be given by Dr. Harper Montgomery, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art at Hunter College.
The presentation will be followed by a brief roundtable discussion moderated by Ilona Katzew (LACMA), with Aleca Le Blanc (University of California, Riverside) and Rachel Kaplan (LACMA).
Free and open to the public.
