     Acclaimed curator and scholar Mari Carmen Ramírez delivers the inaugural lecture of a new series of conversations on Latin American art. Ramírez, who redefined the field through her pioneering exhibitions and publications, focuses on a group of 20th-century avant-garde artists who contributed in significant ways to the history of Modernism. In discussing examples such as David Alfaro Siqueiros’ concept of the “cinematographic mural” or Carlos Cruz-Diez’s “color in space and time,” Ramírez underlines how their theoretical and artistic originality questioned prevailing canons and opened up exciting new artistic horizons. Reception will follow.
