About this product
- DescriptionThis first volume of the Critical Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Lati Art series published by the International Center for the Arts of the Americas at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, presents 168 crucial texts written by influential artists, critics, curators, journalists, and intellectuals whose writings shed light on questions relating to what it means to be Latin American and/or Lati. Reinforced within a critical framework, the documents address converging issues, including: the construct of Latin-ness itself; the persistent longing for a continental identity; tions of Pan-Latin Americanism; the emergence of collections and exhibitions devoted specifically to Latin American or Lati art; and multicultural critiques of Latin American and Lati essentialism. The selected documents, many of which have never before been published in English, span from the late fifteenth century to the present day. They encompass key protagonists of this comprehensive history as well as unfamiliar figures, revealing previously unkwn facets of the questions and issues at play. The book series complements the thousands of seminal documents w available through the ICAA Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Lati Art digital archive, http://icaadocs.mfah.org. Together they establish a much-needed intellectual foundation for the exhibition, collection, and interpretation of art produced in Latin America and among Lati populations in the United States.
