The first issue of Vistas, “Exhibitionary Histories of Postwar Latin American Art,” includes a preface by Alexander Alberro, Virginia Bloedel Wright Professor of Art History at Barnard College and Columbia University, and is edited by Nicholas Chitteden Morgan, PhD candidate at Columbia University. “Exhibitionary Histories of Postwar Latin American Art” features essays by Amelia Ames, Olivia Casa, and Madeline Weisburg. These texts were originally presented at an ISLAA-sponsored conference on the history of exhibitions and museum studies organized by Columbia University and held at the Casa de las Américas in Havana in 2017.
Vistas: Critical Approaches to Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art is a platform for emerging scholars and graduate students working on Latin American art to share their research. The essays published in Vistas emerge from academic programming supported by ISLAA, primarily in partnership with universities. Vistas reflects the vitality and heterogeneity of Latin American art and art history, in line with ISLAA's mission to advance scholarship in this field and support for future generations of experts on Latin American art.
