Join us at Americas Society for a book launch celebrating the release of This Must Be the Place: An Oral History of Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975, the first book of its kind to present the stories of Latin American artists who migrated to New York City in the mid-sixties and shaped the cultural production of that era.

This event features an informal conversation with artists featured in the publication, including Liliana Porter, Sylvia Palacios Whitman, and Nitza Tufiño, moderated by Aimé Iglesias Lukin, author and visual arts director at Americas Society. The conversation will be followed by a reception.

The conversation portion of the event will be streamed live on the Americas Society YouTube page at 6 PM EDT.

This Must Be the Place: An Oral History of Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975 is a co-publication by Americas Society and ISLAA. Available for preorder from Artbook.
