      Art_Latin_America: Against the Survey

      Art_Latin_America: Against the Survey highlights works of modern and contemporary Latin American and Latino art in the permanent collection of the Davis Museum, formed over the past 20-plus years. The exhibition features some 160 works of art by 105 artists (about a third of them women) from 12 countries, including 24 born in the United States. Among them are Ansel Adams, Olga Albizu, Lola Álvarez Bravo, Francis Alÿs, Gunther Gerzso, José Clemente Orozco, Roberto Matta, Ana Mendieta, Liliana Porter, Alice Rahon, and Grete Stern. Refuting chronological or geospecific formats, the exhibition is organized into thematic sections and embraces diversity—aesthetic, of course, but also in terms of the artists’ backgrounds, experiences, residences, and points of view—thereby pushing the concept of “Latin American art” almost to its conceptual limits. By allowing space for new connections, the exhibition aims to generate ideas and narratives that canonical works alone could not reveal.

      Please note: Tickets are required for entry to this special exhibition. General admission, $20; Wellesley College alumnae, $12. Free entry for all students with I.D., Wellesley College faculty and staff, Friends of Art members, and Durant Society members.
