The SAS Public Humanities Initiative & the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the Center for Latin American Studies, and the Art History Department Presents:

"Conquering Self-Representation: The Rise of Amazonian Indigenous Contemporary Art" with Giuliana Borea, an Assistant Professor in Latin American Studies at Newcastle University, and an Affiliated Lecturer of Anthropology at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.

This event will be held on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at 5:40 pm 

From Professor Borea: Today Amazonian Indigenous Contemporary Art circulates in art biennials, contemporary art museums and art markets. While we can talk about a boom of indigenous art, which are the processes, actors and arenas that have facilitated this wider circulation and visibility? Which are the aesthetics, politics and agendas that these artworks mobilize? And which are the paradoxes, limits, and potential of the growing attention on Amazonian indigenous art and artists? This presentation explains the Amazonart Project and its impacts. I will offer new curatorial narratives developed through a collaborative methodology with Amazonian artists. I will explore how these artists are dealing with urgent topics, questioning hegemonic structures of power, and proposing alternative futures.
