This year’s keynote lecture will be given by Dr. Mari Carmen Ramírez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Dr. Ramírez’s talk, “Paradigm Shifts in Latin American and Latinx Art (1980-2019),” will examine the profound transformation in those fields over the last four decades in the US. Special behind-the-scenes programs at partner museums will make this conference a particularly memorable experience, including tours of the Menil Drawing Institute and MFAH collections highlights.
