The Latino Art Now! Nuestra América: Re-imaging Global Intersections Conference in Chicago will continue to examine US-based Latino art production, including new perspectives on the transnational and global contexts of many Latino artists.
Renewed visibility for artists in a wave of major exhibitions at national museums and galleries, the expansion of curatorial and academic infrastructure, and new publication and research initiatives tend to signal wider and expanding opportunities. Can we at the present moment map Latino art activity within a larger transnational, hemispheric, and global context and discourse? The 2016 LAN! Conference will explore the following topics:
Artivisms/Social Practice Art
The City as Site and Source
Outside the White Cube: Digital Interventions
Queer Geographies of Latino Art
Intersections: Latino/Latin American
Comparative Art Histories
Curatorial Negotiations: Authority and Display
Recalibrating Framework and Canon
Art from Emergent Latino Groups
Public/Private Collecting and Collections
Global Networks and Intersections
Recovering Early Artists and Legacies
Reassessing Design and Architecture
Latino Art Market
Art as an Economic Stimulus
