Contributors will include artists, art historians, and curators who organize their research and practice around non-hegemonic art and cultural processes, pointing to different historiographical perspectives. We hope to engage the University community and Chicago-area public in a dialogue around topics that resonate with artists and scholars in/of Latin America and other regions that offer alternative narratives of art and art history.
