Latin American and Latino Art at the Allen
September 2, 2014–June 28, 2015

Latin American and Latino Art at the AllenExperience Latin American & Latino Art at the Allen Memorial Art Museum

The works range from Mexican Revolution-era prints to recent conceptual installations. Organized into thematic groupings—religion and the sacred, immigration and exile, and death and violence, for example—many of the works are on view at the AMAM for the first time.

The exhibition showcases the breadth and quality of a collection shaped, not only as a result of purchases, but also through gifts from individual collectors who championed Latin American art of the 20th and 21st centuries.
