Developed by the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, the exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, works on paper, photography, and mixed media works.
The works of art illustrate the many forms in which Modernism took shape and reveal the commonalities and disconnects that developed throughout the Americas.
Rather than perpetuating a North American-centric hegemony, which tends to diminish and polarize works of art produced by Latin American artists, “Pan American Modernism” demonstrates that these artists were not working in isolation; rather, the global influences of Central and South American artists contributed to the experimental, innovative nature of Modernism in the U.S.
The 2016 UNCG MFA Thesis Exhibition begins May 3.
