Vistas: Critical Approaches to Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art
Cover designed by Santiago Pol
The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) is happy to announce the launch of its first specialized journal. Vistas: Critical Approaches to Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art is a platform for emerging and established scholars, and curators, and graduate students working on Latin American art, to share their research. The journal emerges from the university context, but seeks a diverse readership. Its aim is to support the vitality of Latin American art and history.
The first issue of Vistas, "Exhibitionary Histories of Postwar Latin American Art," includes a Preface by Professor Alexander Alberro, Virginia Bloedel Wright Professor of Art History at Barnard College and Columbia University, and is edited by Nicholas Chitteden Morgan, PhD candidate Columbia University. "Exhibitionary Histories of Postwar Latin American Art" features essays by Amelia Ames, Olivia Casa, and Madeline Weisburg. These texts were originally presented at an ISLAA-sponsored conference on the History of Exhibitions and Museum Studies, organized by Columbia University, and held at the Casa de las Americas in Havana in 2017..

Vistas: Critical Approaches to Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art is still in the developing stage, and the next issues of the journal are currently being planned. Participation guidelines, applications criteria and members of the editorial committee board will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
