Following the 2019 release of Abstract Crossings: Cultural Exchange between Argentina and Brazil by María Amalia García, University of California Press is pleased to announce two forthcoming titles in our Studies on Latin American Art series.

Praised as “highly insightful and theoretically sophisticated,” Dematerialization: Art and Design in Latin America by Karen Benezra is the first English-language book to focus on the relationship of Latin American art and the notion of dematerialization.

Noted for being “a very ambitious volume that offers alternative histories of modernity,” Niko Vicario’s Hemispheric Integration: Materiality, Mobility, and the Making of Latin American Art uniquely brings abstraction and realism into dialogue by examining the transnational scope of Latin American art.

Books in the Studies on Latin American Art series encompass studies of art history and cultural practices emerging from Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the Latin American diaspora in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. International and cosmopolitan in scope, the series seeks to address the production, exhibition, and dissemination of art in and between countries and continents. This series is supported by a gift from the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA).

All three volumes will be on display at CAA 2020. Visit us at Booth # 502 to browse these distinctively beautiful books. To save 40% online with the conference discount, enter code 19E7582 at checkout.
