Symposium on Latin American Art: Live Online This Weekend

Update—videos of this event have been archived here.

The three-day symposium Between Theory and Practice: Rethinking Latin American Art in the 21st Century is streaming live this weekend, from Friday March 11 through Sunday March 13.

We invite you to join us online or on-site at the Getty Center on Friday and the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) on Saturday and Sunday for this event, which brings together an international group of scholars, curators, museum directors, and artists to discuss new approaches to the study and presentation of Latin American art in the 21st century. The schedule is available here.

Presentations and discussion focus on three key areas: the role of the museum in the collection, contextualization, and representation of Latin American art; the production of revisionist art histories through innovative research methodologies, new interpretative frameworks and archive-based scholarship; and experimental curatorial models ranging from historic to contemporary case studies for the interpretation and presentation of art from Latin America.

Videos will be archived following the symposium here.

      From you have I been absent in the spring,
      When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
      Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
      That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,
      Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
      Of different flowers in odor and in hue,
      Could make me any summer’s story tell,
      Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew.
      Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
      Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
      They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
      Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
      Yet seemed it winter still, and, you away,
      As with your shadow I with these did play.

      —William Shakespeare, born April 23, 1564
