Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: Smithsonian American Art Museum
Deadline: Sat, January 15th, 2011

October 6–7, 2011
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.

Paper submissions are invited for this two-day symposium, which will examine artistic exchange between Latin America and the United States from the nineteenth century to the present. The symposium will consider how artists and artworks have crossed the border separating the United States and Latin America (defined as Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean), creating new artistic dialogues and influencing each other's work in meaningful ways. Papers are solicited that couch artistic interchange within its historical moment or political conditions, examining the role of individuals, institutions, publications, and exhibitions in the exchange and promotion of art and ideas.

To submit a paper, please email a two-page, double-spaced abstract (300-500 words) and a short C.V. to AmericanArtSymposium@si.edu by January 15, 2011.

This symposium is supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
