  • Mónica Mayer
  • Carla Stellweg

Since the 1970s, artists Mónica Mayer and Magali Lara have been recognized as two of the most groundbreaking and daring figures in Mexican art. Through their own distinct ideological and stylistic approaches, their work similarly confronts issues of feminism and the female body and critiques the sociopolitical contexts in which they are located.

The Latin American Forum is a series of public lectures about the arts of the Americas, supported by ISLAA. These talks, interviews, and conversations with artists, curators, and scholars promote the advanced understanding of modern and contemporary Latin American and Caribbean art. As a conversational space for the creation of knowledge, it aims to build bridges that allow the exchange of ideas, resources, and methods within the field. Established by ISLAA and The Institute of Fine Arts in 2011, the Latin American Forum is held regularly at The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, throughout the academic year in different formats, including panel discussions, conversations, and lectures. It is coordinated by Edward J. Sullivan and organized by graduate students.
