Critical Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art Book Series

Preparation for publication of the first four volumes of a 13-volume anthology titled Critical Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art; and development of the accompanying online Documents Project critical archive.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston respectfully requests a three-year grant (July 1, 2009 - June 30, 2012) of $300,000 to publish three volumes of Critical Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art, a planned 13-volume anthology series dedicated to providing access to and scholarly interpretation of essential resources related to 20th-century Latin American and Latino art and culture. Translation into English from primarily Spanish and Portuguese will permit many readers to access materials that are exceedingly difficult to access in repositories in Latin America and the United States. The Book Series is part of a ten- to fifteen-year project that brings together geographically dispersed scholars in a collaborative research effort and is dedicated to the recovery and publication of critical primary source documents, written or dictated by authoritative sources from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and the United States.
