U.S. Museums begin to take Latin America art seriously

U.S. Museums begin to take Latin America art seriously

 By the end of 2017, 46 exhibitions and events are planned to take place in Southern California, representing artists and designers of Latin America descendent. Getty Foundation granted the impressive sum of $5 million for the future shows called “Pacific Standard Time: L.A./L.A. (Los Angeles/Latin America)”.

 So where does the attention for Latin America art come from? The president and CEO of Getty Foundation included in his declaration some of the reasons. According to him: “One, there is the historic connection Los Angeles has to Latin America,” he explains. “The other is the demographics of this soon-to-be Hispanic city.” A study made in 2012 proved that 48% percent of California’s population represents Latinos.  It’s just the beginning but many U.S. museums already promoted events related to their neighbors’ artists.  The Los Angeles County Museum of Art unveiled the rebuilding retrospective of the Mexican Cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa in their “Under the Mexican Sky” event. The Museum of Modern Art in New York organized an exhibition devoted to the masterpieces of Brazilian painter Lygia Clark. In Boston the Museum of Fine Arts build a presentation of the ways that Latin American artists dialogued with their contemporaries around the world while the Bronx Museum is showing the ways they have dealt with the influences of Modernist design.

 We can only enjoy the Latin America’s artists’ work, now that most of U.S. museums accorded their attention and brought them to the large public.
