Resources

This is a comprehensive bibliography compiled by the graduate students who organized the exhibition and wrote essays and researched blog posts to accompany it. Our hope is that anyone who might be interested in learning more about modern Latin American art and the specific themes that informed our conceptual approach to the exhibition will find these resources to be a useful starting point.
