Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Joaquín Torres-García: The Arcadian Modern, this half-day symposium brings together artists and scholars to explore central works and key themes in the exhibition, including Torres-García's compelling appeal for a specifically Latin American form of modernity, and his influence on contemporary practice. Participants include Luis Camnitzer, artist; Estrella De Diego, Professor of Contemporary Art, Complutense University of Madrid; Maria Gough, Joseph Pulitzer, Jr. Professor of Modern Art, Harvard University; Niko Vicario, postdoctoral fellow, Getty Research Institute; Jorge Schwartz, Director, Museum Lasar Segall, Sâo Paulo; and Luis Pérez-Oramas, curator of the exhibition.

This event will be live-streamed.

Tickets for this program will be available beginning December 28. Tickets ($20; $15 members and corporate members; $8 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, at the Film desk after 4:00 p.m., or at the Education and Research Building reception desk on the day of the program.
