Meadows Museum Symposium: From the Other Shore: Narratives and Perspectives on Spanish and Latin-American Art

International Symposium - From the Other Shore: Narratives and Perspectives on Spanish & Latin American Art

The purpose of the symposium is to analyze the various ways in which ideas and perceptions about Spanish and Latin American Art have evolved in the last decades, dramatically increasing their international visibility and relevance. To address the implications of shaping a new canon for such problematic categories as Spanish and Latin American art in the context of general art history, the symposium will rely on prestigious museum professionals and university professors. An opening reception will take place at the Meadows Museum on May 1, beginning at 4:30 p.m. This program is organized by the Meadows Museum in collaboration with the University of Málaga, Spain, the University Complutense, Madrid, and the University Tres de Febrero, Buenos Aires. It is part of a research project titled “Narratives on Modern Art,” funded by the Spanish government and the European Community and directed by Dr. Eugenio Carmona. This symposium has been underwritten thanks to a gift by The Meadows Foundation, and facilities are generously provided by SMU's Edwin L. Cox School of Business.
