Session / Séance: DOMINICAN ART STUDIES

Perhaps due to coexisting in the main Cuba’s shadow or because during lustrums some of its most renowned artists resided abroad, perhaps because there has normally been a lack of tradition on its art studies or because of a lack of unity to make its productions known overcoming the prejudices and the distortion on the Dominican Republic, it is true that western and even Ibero-American historiographies have reserved during decades a nominal place to the underestimated and unknown art history of this country. For this reason, the present session invites proposals considering a new research from a historical or a contemporary point of view in any aspect of the Dominican art: from Taino’s creations until nowadays conceptions and from any artistic influence received in to the impact of its artists and works in any part of the world.

Keywords: Dominican art, the Dominican Republic, unknown art history, influence, impact
