From the Page to the Street: Latin American Conceptualism

« All Events

In the 1960s–70s, artists in Latin America participated in the profound reorientation of art traditions known loosely at the time as Conceptualism. From the Page to the Streetillustrates the diverse forms these new practices took – including photographs and video, mail art, poems, Xerox copies, publications, and proposals – and the critical charge they carried during a tumultuous time. Paying special attention to the role of drawing in this radical transition, this exhibition proposes that Latin American artists shared a vision for the potential of art to build politicized constituencies, moving their work off the page and into the street.

Organized by Julia Detchon, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow in Latin American Art, Blanton Museum of Art
