Please join us at the University of California, Santa Barbara, for a Public Workshop on “Latin American Art & Memory” to be held on May 19th, 2017, 3-5pm, Arts Bldg. 1332, in conjunction with the History of Art & Architecture’s 2016-2017 Memory lecture series. The presenters will give short, 10-minute presentations around an object, image or idea, followed by a roundtable discussion.
This workshop investigates the special valences that the preservation, and obliteration, of memory have had in the long history of Latin American visual and material culture.
