Contemporary Latinx Art and Art of Latin America

Paula Burleigh, assistant professor of art history, Allegheny College, and director of the Allegheny Art Gallery

In recent years, contemporary Latin American art—the art of Mexico, Central, and South America—has witnessed increasing recognition among art institutions and viewing publics in the United States. However, distinctions between the art of Latin America versus Latinx art remain vague, with the latter remaining far less visible in today’s contemporary landscape. This lecture explores recent debates about the merits of naming Latinx Art as a category, and likewise highlights some of the exciting, wide ranging practices among contemporary Latinx and Latin American artists.
