Darwin Cordoba Lecture
Visionaries and Innovators at the Intersection of Modernities
Mari Carmen Ramírez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art, Director of International Center for the Arts of the Americas, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Hear from acclaimed curator and scholar, Mari Carmen Ramírez, who redefined the field of Latin American art through her pioneering exhibitions and publications. In this lecture, Ramírez focuses on a group of 20th-century avant-garde artists who contributed in significant ways to the history of Modernism. In discussing examples such as David Alfaro Siqueiros's concept of the "cinematographic mural" or Carlos Cruz-Diez's "color in space and time," Ramírez underlines how their theoretical and artistic originality questioned prevailing canons and opened up exciting new artistic horizons.
