Latin American Art: From Columbus to the Present

Art from Latin America remains a neglected territory in visual culture. Historically, communications and discourse with Latin America were more oriented to Europe than North America. This course is designed to address the isolation of Latin American art and its gradual emergence on an international level. Gain an understanding of post-Columbian, colonial-era art; examine major developments in Mexico, Venezuela, and Brazil; and look at the emergence of Latin American art on the international stage in the last two decades. Also, consider the role of history and economics, as well as cultural biases, in embracing Latin American art. This course includes a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and El Museo del Barrio.
