Calls For Papers

Latin American and Caribbean Art (s): From Where? From Whom? (UAAC, online, October 20-23, 2021)

Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: Université de Montréal
Deadline: Sun, May 16th, 2021

This open session invites scholars, curators, and artists to share their current research on Latin American and Caribbean art (s). The goal is to create dialogue and exchange on the state of those fields. We welcome both contemporary and historical perspectives (from the pre-Columbian period to the present day) and the exploration of a variety of media (painting, sculpture, installation, photography, performance, socially engaged practices, new media, architecture, etc.). We are interested in examining the historical and contemporary presence of Latin American and Caribbean art(s)/artists beyond their traditional geopolitical borders; the inherent intersectionality of those concepts, and also their transmutation in light of past and current migratory and activist movements, technological advances, and sanitary crises; any other topic on art and artists in Latin America and the Caribbean delving into, for instance, the Caribbean’s complex relationship to Latin American.

We accept proposals in French and English | Nous acceptons les propositions en français et en anglais.
