Between Theory and Practice: Rethinking Latin American Art in the 21st Century. 


Curatorial Models: Emblematic Contemporary Cases

This session will focus on the analysis of emblematic contemporary art exhibitions. Papers will explore the differences between art historical curatorial practice and contemporary curatorial art practice, given that a historical approach requires a specialized and contextualized practice, whereas contemporary curating calls for an international context.

An international group of scholars, curators, museum directors and artists discuss new approaches to the study and presentation of Latin American art in the 21st century. This symposium focuses 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. This symposium is organized by the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute and is funded with support from the Getty Foundation.
