Beyond Recovery—A Collaborative Expansion of the ICAA Documents Project Digital Archive

A project to process and upload approximately 10 art journals and 1,500 documents by notable Latin American and Latino artists, critics, curators, and historians into a digital archive that integrates artists’ sketches and notes, lectures, manuscripts, correspondence, and newspaper articles documenting 20th-century Latin American and Latino art. A new database and user interface would improve the functionality of the resource.

Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art: A Digital Archive and Publications Project is a multi-year, multi-million dollar project dedicated to the recovery and publication of critical primary source documents related to Latin American and Latino art. This initiative addresses the endemic lag in the field of Latin American/Latino art history, research, and teaching by providing access to writings by artists, artistic groups, critics, and curators from North and South America. The project’s Digital Archive provides users free, universal access to a database of thousands of primary source documents that are fundamental resources for Latin American and Latino studies."Beyond Recovery-A Collaborative Expansion of the ICAA Documents Project Digital Archive" is a long-term strategic approach to utilize collaborative partnerships to move the project into the 21st century, ensuring the Digital Archive’s operational advancement and future relevance.
