The Permanent Seminar in Latin American Art is a critical working group of faculty, researchers, and graduate students who meet regularly to discuss and develop research projects in progress. It provides a unique exploratory context for analyzing the process of change in modern and contemporary Latin American art in the global setting. It also offers a welcoming place for dialogue among scholars, artists, curators, and critics from abroad. The Permanent Seminar aims to stimulate contacts between young researchers, create an international network for the exchange of ideas on Latin American art, and disseminate current research.
The Permanent Seminar is focused on Latin American and U.S. Latino modern and contemporary art and visual culture. Diaspora studies and the analysis of colonialism, migration, and exile inform research perspectives, emphasizing the junctures that encourage interdisciplinary viewpoints.
