Foregrounding Central American Art: Hosted by Dr Ileana L. Selejan

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products

Abstract / Description of output

For many decades Central American art was perceived as residing on the periphery of the periphery. Even within the field of Latin American art, in scholarship and curatorial practice alike, the region continues to be marginalised. Nonetheless, the field of art has undergone major transformations, especially since the 1990s, with artists and collective endeavours making significant contributions in local and international settings. Recent years have witnessed renewed interest in practices from the region, even more so now, in the aftermath of the decolonial turn. For this series of 6 podcast episodes, Decolonising Arts Institute fellow Dr. Ileana L. Selejan will be in conversation with key figures in Central American contemporary art. These artists, scholars and curators have worked towards establishing innovative approaches and curatorial models, creating partnerships and networks that have profoundly altered the landscape of art in the region, pushing forth towards its greater recognition within our field and around the world.
