Retratos : 2,000 years of Latin American portraits by Elizabeth P Benson( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tradition of portraiture in Latin America is astonishingly long and rich. For over 2,000 years, portraits have been used to preserve the memory of the deceased, bolster the social standing of the aristocracy, mark the deeds of the mighty, advance the careers of politicians, record rites of passage, and mock symbols of the status quo. This beautiful and wide-ranging book-the first to explore the tradition of portraiture in Latin America from pre-Columbian times to the present day-features some 200 works from fifteen countries. Retratos (Portraits) presents an engaging variety of works by such well-known figures as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Fernando Botero, and Jose Campeche as well as stunning examples by anonymous and obscure artists. Distinguished contributors discuss the significance of portraits in ancient Mayan civilizations, in the world of colonial Iberians, in the political struggles of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and in a remarkable range of other times and locations. With a wealth of informative details and exquisite color illustrations, Retratos invites readers to appreciate Latin American portraits and their many meanings as never before. F This book is the catalogue for the first exhibition of Latin American portraiture ever organized in the United States. The exhibition is on view at El Museo del Barrio, New York (December 3, 2004 to March 20, 2005) the San Diego Museum of Art (April 16 to June 12, 2005) the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach (July 23 to October 2, 2005) the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian, Washington, D.C.

Nexus New York : Latin/American artists in the modern metropolis ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Between 1900 and 1942, New York City was the site of extraordinary creative exchange where artists could share ideas in a global context. The swiftly changing urban landscape before and between the World Wars inspired the erosion of artistic boundaries and fostered a new climate of modernist experimentation. Nexus New York focuses on key artists from the Caribbean and Latin America who entered into dynamic cultural and social dialogues with the American-based avant-garde and participated in the development of a new modern discourse. Featuring both celebrated and little-known figures of this period, including Carlos Enriquez, Alice Neel, Marius de Zayas, Francis Picabia, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Jose Clemente Orozco, Matta, and Robert Motherwell, contributing authors also discuss the specific environments in which they flourished, including the Art Students League, the Siqueiros Experimental Workshop, and the New School for Social Research. A fascinating look at 20th-century modernism, this book provides the first view of the important encounters between artists of the Americas
Caribbean : art at the crossroads of the world ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unprecedented in scope, this beautiful book offers an authoritative examination of the modern history of the Caribbean through its artistic culture. Featuring 500 color illustrations of artworks from the late 18th through the 21st century, the book explores modern and contemporary art, ranging from the Haitian revolution to the present. Acknowledging both the individuality of each island, the richness of the coastal regions, and the reach of the Diaspora, Caribbean looks at the vital visual and cultural links that exist among these diverse constituencies. The authors examine how the Caribbean has been imagined and pictured, and the role of art in the development of national identity. Essays by leading scholars cover such topics as the interconnections between Caribbean artistic production to its colonial contexts; between various generations of artists; and between the so-called high and low arts and religion, music, and carnival celebrations. Primary source documents crucial to understanding the region provide an important complement. -- Publisher description

Marisol : sculptures and works on paper by Marina Pacini( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Paris-born, Venezuelan artist Marisol (b. 1930) burst onto the 1960s New York art scene with large figural sculptures in a wild amalgam of mixed media. Often satirical, Marisol's art is inspired by sources as diverse as Pre-Columbian art, folk art, Cubism, and Surrealism. For the past several decades, however, Marisol has shunned the spotlight and her artwork has been overlooked as a result. Accompanying the first retrospective of Marisol's work in more than a decade, this long-awaited and beautifully illustrated volume offers a much-needed corrective, reestablishing her role as a major figure in postwar American art. Essays by leading scholars of Latin American and 20th-century art explore all facets of her work including her influences, the theme of family, American politics and pop culture, Native American rights and poverty, her role as a female artist, and her relationship to Latin America and Latin American art"
Retro/active : the work of Rafael Ferrer : June 8-August 22, 2010 El Museo del Barrio, New York by Rafael Ferrer( Book )

Luis Camnitzer : Daros Museum, Zürich, March 11 - July 4, 2010 ; El Museo del Barrio, New York, February 2 - May 29, 2011 by Luis Camnitzer( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Uruguayan artist Luis Camnitzer was born in Lübeck, Germany, in 1937, grew up in Montevideo, and has lived and worked in New York since 1964. He has made an international reputation for himself, not only as an artist but also as a critic, educator, and art theorist. Although in terms of form his art is close to American Conceptual Art of the sixties and seventies, Camnitzer has created a body of work over the past fifty years that stands entirely on its own. Thanks to its sophisticated depth, keen humor, playful and poetic qualities, as well as its ironic, metaphorical ambiguity and its strong social and political commitment, his work is clearly and unmistakably unlike that of his American colleagues. This publication offers profound insight into Camnitzer's charmingly ironic yet poetically mature oeuvre from 1966 to the present day."--Publisher's website
