“Encuentros: Artistic Exchange between the U.S. and Latin America”
October 5-6, 2011
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
This two-day symposium will examine artistic encounters between Latin America and the United States from the nineteenth century to the present. Talks will consider how artists and artworks have crossed the border separating the United States and Latin America, creating new artistic dialogues and influencing each other’s work in meaningful ways. Speakers include Valerie Fraser of the University of Essex, Itala Schmelz Herner of the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Edward Sullivan of the Institute of Fine Arts at NYU, Katherine Manthorne of CUNY Graduate Center, and artist Luis Camnitzer. Encuentros is the third of five Terra Symposia on American Art in a Global Context organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum with a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art. The event will be free and open to the public, but registration is required. For details, please visit www.americanart.si.edu/research/symposia/2011.
