Clark Art Institute


The keynote lecture, “Undead Darwinism and the Fault Lines of Neocolonialism in Latinx Art Worlds,” will be given by Laura Elisa Pérez, professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies and chair of the Latinx Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, on Friday, May 3 at 4 p.m.

The all-day symposium brings together leading museum curators, museum directors, and art historians to discuss the aesthetic contribution of US Latinx arts and how to (re)imagine art history as a more aesthetically expansive, culturally relevant, and socially inclusive field. The distinguished panel of speakers addresses the intersectionalities that Latinx communities represent across race, class, gender, sexuality, and immigration—and how these factors may impact the production and presentation of the visual arts. As interrogation of underrepresentation within the academy, museum, and galleries continues, now is the time to come together and critically reassess the field.

The symposium is organized by C. Ondine Chavoya, Professor of Art and Latina/o Studies at Williams College, and Marco Antonio Flores, MA ’19, a student in the Williams Graduate Program in the History of Art. For more information, email
