Latin American Art: The Market Shifts
Tuesday, December 12
Latin American art is now an undisputed player in the international art market. It has moved rapidly from the margins just a decade ago to a highly desired position today: Any respectable modern/contemporary collection will likely include several works by artists from Latin American or Latinx artists. Major museums (MoMA, Tate, Metropolitan, MFAH, LACMA and others) have dedicated curatorial departments for Latin American/Latinx art. How has the gallery landscape shifted to incorporate this new and increased interest? In this panel we discuss different models for dealing with and collecting art from Latin America, from galleries with different approaches and histories in this field.
