Latin American Forum
Welcome to the Latin American Forum! We wish to create a space of dialogue and discussion around matters concerning modern and contemporary Latin American art. Most of our events will take place in the seminar room of the IFA (although at times we will sponsor events elsewhere in the University). The idea is to have a smaller-than-usual venue for more intense conversation and to distribute either the papers or a précis of the talk to the audience beforehand so that guests will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the subject and formulate questions and comments.
This forum is generously funded by the Institute of Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA). For more information on ISLAA, click here.
