The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) expands scholarship and public engagement with art from Latin America through our program of exhibitions, publishing, research, and partnerships.
Ariel Aisiks founded ISLAA in 2011 to raise the international visibility of art from Latin America. The pursuit of this goal has led to ISLAA’s involvement in more than 500 lectures and conferences, 35 books, and 25 large-scale exhibitions.

ISLAA will be closed to the public this summer as we prepare to move to our new space in the fall.

At ISLAA we are working toward accessibility for all visitors. Please note that there are steps at the entrance to our ground-level space, and that our exhibition area features a split-level floor. Please contact us in advance of your visit if you have any accessibility questions or to arrange entry via ramp through the building lobby. We strive to accommodate our visitors however we can.
Each year we produce a report summarizing significant milestones in our research, publishing, exhibition, partnership programs, and collection. We invite the public to explore past and present reports detailing the platforms we have sustained and created to champion Latin American art at ISLAA and beyond.
Current program offerings are summarized in quarterly overview reports.
The Ten Year Report encapsulates ISLAA’s activity across partnerships, publications, exhibitions, and research between 2011 and 2021.
