The Association for Latin American Art is pleased to present its Fourth Triennial Conference on the theme of “Art at Large: Public and Monumental Arts in the Americas,” hosted by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in collaboration with the Department of History of Art at the University of California, Berkeley and the Museum Studies Program at San Francisco State University.
Conference papers will address Latin American art across a broad span of time, conventionally organized as: ancient/Pre-Columbian, colonial/viceregal; modern and contemporary. Additionally, the conference in San Francisco includes a panel of papers that address the arts and architecture of California and the Bay Area as they relate to Latin American, Latina/o, and/or Chicana/o art and visual culture. Papers consider questions such as: What is the relationship between the public and the monumental? How do public spheres or public personas shape or inform artistic production or expression? Inversely, how do monumental art, architecture, and visual culture affect lived, public spaces? Furthermore, how might separations between public and private arenas of art making be problematized or complicated?
