The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Harvard University’s Department of History of Art and Architecture present a panel discussion on the MFA’s first exhibition of contemporary art from Latin America, followed by the book launching of Guatemalan artist Darío Escobar’s first monograph. Together, these conversations address the local concerns, international circulation, and future of “Latin American art” in both broad and specific terms.
