How did colonialism reconfigure the geographies of the Americas? What role did artistic and scientific practice play in the invention and incorporation of the New World? And how does the colonial period remain a persistent horizon for art and politics in the region? These presentations examine the colonial period and its contemporary legacies in Latin America.
This lecture series examines key topics in Latin American history in anticipation of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA and seeks to generate a conversation between exhibition curators and the academic community.
