Antropologia de la mula  / Bustos
An international group of scholars, curators, museum directors, and artists discuss new approaches to the study and presentation of Latin American art in the 21st century. This symposium focuses on three key areas: the roles of museums in the collection, contextualization, and representation of Latin American art; the production of revisionist art histories through innovative research methodologies, new interpretative frameworks, and archive-based scholarship; and experimental curatorial models for the interpretation and presentation of historic and contemporary art from Latin America.

These sessions in Lima constitute the second phase of this project; the first part, developed in partnership with the Getty Research Institute with the support of the Getty Foundation, was held in March 2011 at the Getty Center and MOLAA in Long Beach. The second part continues the discussion that began in Los Angeles, while taking the debate to a new and more conclusive level.
