Product Description

This collection of critical essays examines distinctive moments of the Americas Society's visual art program and its impact on the formation of a Latin American market in the United States. Founded in 1965, the Americas Society has played a pivotal role in Latin American art, from Pre-Colombian to modernism. The book brings together a cross-cultural group of art historians and curators, including Alexander Alberro, Alexander Ap stal, Beverly Adams, Cecilia Brunson, Luis Camnitzer, Thomas Cummins, Andrea Giunta, Nicol s Guagnini, Paulo Herkenhoff, Anna Indych-Lopez, Luis Perez Oramas, John Pruitt, Mary Scheider Enriquez, and Sof a Sanabrais who discuss the relevance of the institution's intricate relationships with art, economics, and politics. Essays address the emergence of site-specific practices such as Gego's Reticul rea and neo-avant-garde manifestations such as the Fashion Show Poetry Event conceived by E. Costa, J. Perrault, and H. Wiener; Marta Minujin's happenings; Michael Snow's photographs; David Siqueiros' monographic show; and the notion of landscape in the Western Hemisphere, among other significant topics. A Principality of Its Own explores the achievements, frictions, and experiments that modeled the institution from the Cold War to the present.. Price: $27.95
