The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) partners with universities and institutions to reach a wider audience through lectures, conferences, seminars, and exhibitions.

Academic Partnerships

  • The Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

    ISLAA's collaboration with the Institute is one of our longest-running collaborations, and includes four programming series under the leadership of Edward Sullivan: the Latin American Forum, South and About!, the Duke House Exhibition Series, and the Annual Symposium on Latin American Art.

  • Columbia University

    ISLAA provides annual support to the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University and Barnard College since 2012. Through this partnership, Alexander Alberro produces a variety of programs including conferences and seminars.

  • ISLAA Forum: Living Histories of Latin American Art

    An alliance of mid-Atlantic universities organized in March 2020 will continue in 2022, enabling professional development and regional community among advanced graduate students of art history. This program encourages exchanges and resource-sharing between graduate students at the University of Maryland, Temple University, and the University of Pittsburgh.

  • ISLAA Forum: Latin American and Latinx Art and Visual Culture Dissertation Workshop

    This annual dissertation workshop builds community and professional networks for graduate students, who convene for two-day workshops to focus on dissertation proposals or a single thesis chapter. Students will present their work to an invited scholar and faculty from University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Latin American Visual Studies (CLAVIS). Participants will share public presentations on their projects and the invited scholar will offer a public lecture or seminar.
