Cost: $15. Registration required.

This two-hour workshop invites participants with an interest in Latin American and Latinx art documentation and archives to an interdisciplinary dialogue centered on critical issues specific to our field(s): bilingual cataloging and metadata, post-custodial digital archiving, building and maintaining international partnerships, collaborations with librarians and archivists, lack of access to materials, and teaching with primary sources. Led by a research center at a large museum, the workshop will depart from a short presentation on its flagship initiative, a digital archive and publications project that provides access to primary source and critical documents in these fields. Since its inception, the project has addressed the endemic lag in access to documentation in Latin American and Latinx art, and in doing so has opened new paths for research and scholarship and served as an entry point for a general appreciation for the cultural production of the Americas.
