Alternative Art Histories is a two-day symposium focused on U.S. Latinx art and art history. The symposium will bring together leading museum curators, museum directors, and art historians to discuss the aesthetic contribution of U.S. Latinx arts and how we might (re)imagine art history as a more aesthetically expansive, culturally relevant, and socially inclusive field. The distinguished panel of speakers have been at the forefront of establishing the field of Latinx art history and developing a critical framework for understanding and analyzing this quickly expanding visual arts discourse. Discussions will address the intersectionalities that Latinx communities represent across race, class, gender, sexuality, and immigration and how these factors may impact the production and presentation of the visual arts. As we continue to interrogate underrepresentation within the academy, museum, and galleries, now seems a particularly necessary time to come together and critically reassess the field.
