Latin American Art: beyond the fairs, galleries and stereotypes

Latin American Art: beyond the fairs, galleries and stereotypes

This overview and these reflections on Latin American contemporary art will attempt to unpretentiously examine and tackle the problematics, misconceptions and stereotypes when trying to understand how the contemporary art from that region is perceived, particularly in Europe and in the United States. My reflections on Latin American contemporary art in this essay are greatly informed by research as well as the various conversations that I conducted with artists, curators, gallerists, museum directors and specialists.
