Featuring the work of 43 Latin American artists and 26 artists from the United States, Pan American Modernism explores the rich visual dialogue that exists between objects produced by artists working in 13 countries in North, South, and Central America during the 60-year period between 1919 and 1979. Rather than perpetuating a North American-centric hegemony, which tends to diminish and polarize works of art produced by Latin American artists, the exhibition analyzes how Pan American artistic exchanges, rather than stylistic transmission, constructs a fuller understanding of modernism as an international phenomenon across the Americas.
