This course will examine the complex and rich relationships that characterize the activities of Caribbean, Brazilian, and Latin American artists who worked in New York City as residents or travellers over the course of the last century. Distinct cultural perspectives and productive engagements with American and European contemporaries demonstrate the significance of a Latin American presence. From the interwar period through the 1960s, Latin American artists have also made contributions within the context of leading New York institutions including the Museum of Modern Art and the New School for Social Research. Concurrently and to the present, distinct trends in performance art, film/ video, and conceptual art aimed to engage the public within and beyond cultural institutions. The course will conclude with contemporary artists whose work is circulated globally. Students will have the opportunity to engage with primary sources in the city including artworks, exhibitions, and archives.
