  • Description

    Join us for a lecture by Dr. Monica Amor, Associate Professor at Maryland Institute College of Art. Dr. Amor will lecture on specific chapters of her career-long research on late modern artistic practices by artists from Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela as it implies a reflection on historical, local, and material conditions of cultural production beyond the dominant narratives of art history. Dr. Amor teaches modern and contemporary art with a focus on expanded mediums, intermedial practices and interdisciplinarity. Her approach is global, highlighting the role of institutions and exhibitions in the production of cultural representations. Her published research engages postwar abstraction and post-object aesthetics as well as the transatlantic dialogues between Europe and South America.
    This lecture is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Plural Domains: Selected Works from the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation," which is held simultaneously at the Harn Museum of Art (September 7, 2021–April 24, 2022) and the University Gallery (September 14, 2021–February 26, 2022) of the University of Florida.
