In conjunction with the exhibition Antonio Manuel: I Want to Act, Not
Represent! on view at the Americas Society Art Gallery from September 15
to December 10, 2011.

This day-long symposium will explore the development of artistic
practices as a result of political oppression in Latin America and
internationally during the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout this era, artists
dealt with politically complex issues in their artistic production
through a variety of styles and media. These aesthetic explorations
include the “New Objectivity,’’ geometric abstraction, socially-engaged
art, media-related and investigative projects, and, finally, conceptual,
body, and performance art.

The first half of the symposium will explore ideas around the question:
“In what ways were these new modes of expression uniquely suited to
address times of political oppression?’’
