Vistas 9—Kenneth Kemble and Silvia Torras: The Formative Years, 1956–63 focuses on the painters Kenneth Kemble and Silvia Torras, two critical figures in the global story of abstract art in the mid-twentieth century. This issue is dedicated to the Spring 2023 Duke House Exhibition.
The Duke House Exhibition Series brings contemporary art to the walls of the Institute of Fine Arts’s landmarked James B. Duke House. The work is displayed in the beaux-arts interior of the former residence of the Duke family, juxtaposing the historic with the contemporary and inviting viewers to engage with both the past and the future of the institute. Since 2019, ISLAA has been proud to support the Duke House Exhibition Series in its showcasing of the work of Latin American artists.
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 future generations of experts on Latin American art.
