Converging Cultures: Asian Diasporas and Latin American and Caribbean Art from 1940 to the Present

Planning for a traveling exhibition about the impact of Asian immigration on art in Latin America and the Caribbean from 1940 to the present.

International Arts and Artists (IA&A) seeks $55,170 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to cover part of the costs associated with the planning of Converging Cultures: Asian Diasporas and Latin American and Caribbean Art from 1940 to the Present (working title), a traveling art exhibition to be developed in collaboration with AMA|Art Museum of the Americas (AMA) of the Organization of American States (OAS), located in Washington, D.C. and a team of scholarly advisors. The exhibition will travel to up to 9 museums in the United States over a 2-3 year period from 2018 to 2021. Converging Cultures will focus on the multifaceted nature of cultural diversity in Latin America and the Caribbean by considering the impact of waves of Asian migrations, mixed racial heritages and global interchange on the modern and contemporary art of Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Panama, Cuba, Suriname, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago.
