Founded in 2009, CLAVIS is a center for the advanced study of modern and contemporary art and visual culture from the Americas. Focusing on research and the training of emerging scholars, it is a space for the creation of original art historical knowledge through intellectual rigor and collaboration across disciplinary and geographic boundaries. CLAVIS leverages the world-class resources at the University of Texas at Austin—including the Benson Library, Blanton Museum of Art, Ransom Center, and scholars of Latin American and Latinx studies across campus—to build bridges with colleagues and the public.

“Latin American Networks: Synchronicities, Contacts, and Divergences,” a multilingual dossier, including research articles, artist interview, and book reviews by participants in the CLAVIS “Grounds for Comparison: Neo-Vanguards and Latin American/U.S. Latino Art, 1960-90” seminars, with new collaborators, published in Artelogie (May 2020).
The dossier was made possible with the generous support of the Getty Foundation’s Connecting Art Histories initiative. This is the second of three planned dossiers. The first, “Exhibitions as Fields of Comparison,” was published in Caiana in 2017.

The Permanent Seminar in Latin American Art is a working group of faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars who meet regularly to develop research projects in progress and discuss current issues of methodology and historiography. It has no beginning or end, but is rather a workshop committed to ongoing critical collegiality and experimentation outside of curricular and professional constraints.
