University of Houston System (Houston, TX 77204-0001)
Rex A. Koontz (Project Director: June 2016 to March 2021)
Activating the Archive in Latin American and Latino Art History

A two-year collaborative project between the University of Houston (UH) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) to enable public and curricular use of MFAH’s International Center for the Art of the Americas resources.

"Activating the Archive" is a two-year project that brings together the University of Houston (UH) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) in a collaboration that will allow a large audience to access and study Latin American and Latino culture history and art criticism through primary documents in Spanish and English. This University-Museum collaboration focuses on what is already the most significant open-access, digital database of Latino and Latin American art history and criticism--the Documents of 20th-century Latin American and Latino Art (hereafter the "Documents Project"). Here we activate the archive through the addition of English translations, geospatial data, and Latino art journals.
