Permanent Seminar in Latin American Art

Focusing on Latin American and U.S. Latino art, the Permanent Seminar of the Center for Latin American Visual Studies (CLAVIS) is an open-ended research space dedicated to the creative production of knowledge; participation includes graduate students, artists, art historians, curators and critics from UT and from Latin America. The Permanent Seminar's mission is to establish a critical working group of faculty, researchers and graduate students who meet regularly to discuss and develop research projects in progress. It provides a unique exploratory context for analyzing the process of change in modern and contemporary Latin American art in a global setting. It also provides a welcoming place for dialogue with scholars from abroad.
