With Dr. Michele Greet

Dr. Michele Greet, assistant professor, department of history and art history, George Mason University, will present a lecture entitled “Transatlantic Encounters: Latin American Artists in Paris Between the Wars” on Thursday, May 20, 2010 at Miami Art Museum. Dr. Greet will examine pivotal works made by Latin American artists in Paris in the years between World War I and II, when Paris was at the center of the art world. During this time, more than 200 Latin American artists traveled to Paris, contributing to and re-interpreting every major modernist trend. The lecture is organized in conjunction with Between Here and There: Modern and Contemporary Art from the Permanent Collection, now on view at Miami Art Museum. Dr. Greet is a graduate of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She recently published Beyond National Identity: Pictorial Indigenism as a Modernist Strategy in Andean Art, 1920-1960. She is currently working on a manuscript on the subject of this lecture.
