Art Talk: Latin American art? Art in Latin America?

January 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Art Talk January

This is a FREE event but registration is needed. Get your free ticket at Eventbrite.

What do we mean by Latin American art? Are we referring to art produced on Latin American soil? Or is it art created by people born in Latin America? To explore these questions further, join us on Zoom on January 21st from 6:30-8 pm for an intriguing Art Talk presented by Jairo Salazar, in which he will discuss the challenges that have forged the local and global imaginaries of what the concept of “Latin American art” stands for in our current times. Thinking about Latin American art poses aesthetic and conceptual challenges that are the consequences of colonization, independence, and modernization, not to mention the overwhelming repercussions in the territorial, identitarian, and cultural amalgamation of the Latin American experience in the twentieth and twenty-first century. Come ready to engage with the facilitator and other attendees in this “living room”-style event.
