Conference: WORLDVIEWS : Latin American Art and the Decolonial Turn

Live Session: Margins and Institutions: New Curatorial Strategies Thursday November 18th, 2.00pm GMT

Join us for this live session of the conference which brings together contributions from scholars, curators and artists to discuss how decoloniality acts as a frame of reference in the study of Latin American Art.

Session Abstract: Since the 1980s, museums and institutional galleries across Western Europe and North America have increasingly held exhibitions and collected work by artists from Latin America. Whilst this must be recognised as a welcome opening towards cultures previously considered, by those same institutions, as derivative or, worst, unworthy of art historical consideration, certain consequences to such openness must also be taken into account. The attention received by so-called ‘global museums’ often sets in play discrepancies between national and international art historical narratives. With cognisance of the conference’s location within one of the epicentres of Western art historical articulation, this panel is interested in contributions exploring the interstices between the ‘global art’ discourse and curatorial initiatives specific to regional contexts.

Chair: Paul Goodwin (UAL) Keynote: Paulo Miyada (Centre Pompidou) Speakers: Carolina Castro (curator and researcher); Pamela Desjardins (curator and researcher); Clara Masnatta (Harvard/Humboldt U. of Berlin); Eloisa Rodrigues (University of Leicester).
