Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, PhD, is one of the most important scholars of Latin American art in the United States, and the former curator of the SPACE Collection, a significant part of which was donated to Phoenix Art Museum in 2017.
The lecture New Paradigms of Contemporary Latin American Abstraction will propose new ways of thinking and experiencing Latin American contemporary abstraction. No longer involved with the complex processes of now failed modernities, Latin American abstraction since the 1990s is embedded in the daily fabric of life. It has become a laboratory for critical intervention on pressing social, political and cultural issues while continuing to reimagine experimentally how abstraction may look today, when it is no longer defined in contraposition to reality.
