Rethinking Conceptualism: Avant-Garde, Activism, and Politics in Latin America (1960s – 1980s)

I attended a few of the lectures within the “Rethinking Conceptunalism: Avant-Garde, Activism, and Politics in Latin America” symposium and was blown away by the sessions on the works of radical Latin American Women artists by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Claudia Calirman.

Sadly, I was unable to share the Q&A zoom talk between Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Claudia Calirman but I am linking to their lectures here. I really hope you come away feeling revitalised by their insights, their studies, observations, and of course, more enthusiastic about the amazing women artists they discuss. I know I am! I’m thirsty for more!
