Cultural and Research Resources from and about Latin America

When the COVID-19 outbreak limited our ability to connect with one another to online communications, we scoured the Internet to find recources to share with our listserv. We focused on online outreach programs from various cultural institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. From virtual tours of museums to music and theater performances streamed live, we highlighted transnational initiatives aimed at making Latin American cultural resources available in new formats. Links that were included in our digests have been compiled here for continued access. Some of the resources may no longer be available, but we are including them here as a way to showcase the organizations and artists that have made their work available during the pandemic. For additional resources, you can also explore the Latin American and Caribbean Studies digital collections through the library. Please explore and enjoy.

In a series of large-scale paintings, Velázquez—who lives between Ponce, Puerto Rico and Chicago—explores the lush, tropical landscape through vibrant colors and thick oil paint smears, known as impasto, creating surreal scenes from memories, dreams, and his daily walks and drives through the Puerto Rican countryside. In Velázquez’s paintings, the landscape and its creatures are mystical entities that reveal the dark legacies of colonialism and the experience of the Puerto Rican diaspora.

National Museum of African American History and Culture’s Latinx Collection
The National Museum of African American History and Culture presents American history through an African American lens. Latinx history is American history and the NMAAHC is committed to collecting, documenting, interpreting, and preserving Latinx history and culture as an integral part of that American story. Black history is globally created and globally impactful. A shared legacy of the transatlantic slave trade connects the histories and cultures of the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Further, Latinxs and Latin Americans—black and non-black—have historically contributed to and have been shaped by African American culture, including performing arts, music, literature, sports, and political movements. Conversely, African Americans have influenced Latinx and Latin American art, history, and culture as well. Articulating these connections across the African Diaspora affirms black American history as multicultural and inclusive of Latinx experiences. The Latinx-related objects and archival collections at the National Museum of African American History and Culture traverse racial identifications and national boundaries. This online portal is a guide to exploring the diversity of our Latinx-related holdings.

Only recently has the Denver Art Museum begun to acquire modern and contemporary Latin American art, as the collection should not be solely devoted to explore the past, but also bridge with the cultural narratives of the present and the future.
Latinx Art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum
The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s leading Latinx art collection represents a profound commitment to building a great national collection reflecting the rich contributions of Latinos to our country, from the colonial period to the present. Artists featured in the collection reflect the diversity of Latino communities in the United States, including artists of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Dominican descent, as well as other Latin American groups with deep roots in the United States. SAAM’s Latinx collection presents a picture of an evolving national culture that challenges expectations of what is meant by “American” and “Latino.” Themes since the mid-twentieth century, when the concept of a collective Latino identity began to emerge, tackle civil rights, identity, and reexamining community and bicultural experiences. Many of the Latinx artists in the collection critically probe American history and popular culture, revealing the possibilities and tensions of expansionism, migration, and settlement. Other Latinx artists devote themselves to experimentation and form, pushing the limits of their chosen medium.

The photographs in the Bustamante Photograph Collection depict various aspects of the life, architecture, and culture of Havana and other Cuban cities and towns at the turn of the 20th century. Also in this collection are several photographs of Cuba dating from the 1950s and 1960s and color snapshots from the 1990s. 
Joaquín Orellana: The Spine of Music
The first exhibition of the Guatemalan composer’s útiles sonoros (sound tools) in the United States, Joaquín Orellana: The Spine of Music presents these innovative instruments alongside the work of contemporary artists. This exhibition connects the musician’s avant-garde sensibility with that of artists including Carlos Amorales, María Adela Díaz, Akira Ikezoe, and Alberto Rodríguez Collía, each of whom has spent time with the composer and created work related to his practice. As a part of this project, Americas Society has commissioned a new score by Orellana, Efluvios y puntos, which will premiere at Americas Society. The instruments will continue to be activated in the gallery over the course of the exhibition. This exhibition was curated by Diana Flatto and Sebastián Zubieta. 
Stories of Abstraction: Contemporary Latin American Art in the Global Context

Showcasing more than 40 recently acquired works of contemporary Latin American art alongside 30 works by American and European artists, Stories of Abstraction: Contemporary Latin American Art in the Global Context explores how the visual language of abstraction has generated profound insights into Latin American culture and politics and how Latin American artists have drawn on abstraction’s parallel history in the United States and Europe. 
William Camargo: Negotiated Frontiers
In Negotiated Frontiers, on view from January 14 to April 30, photo-based artist William Camargo brings together three bodies of work that negotiate space and interrogate the artist’s positionality while aiming to deconstruct the photographic canon. Using photography, installation, political public performances, and community archiving, this exhibition re-evaluates a photographic history that continuously omits or tokenizes Black, Indigenous, Queer and Brown perspectives in the medium. This virtual exhibition curated by Dalina A. Perdomo-Álvarez, will run from January 14 - April 20th 2021, and be paired with a limited edition print publication. The publication* will further expand upon Camargo’s Origins & Displacements, As Far As I Can Get, and All That I Can Carry series. 
Latin American Popular Art
In the spring of 2017, there was a confined flood in the Latin American Folk Art gallery. This incident required a complete deinstallation in order to repair the gallery space. After being closed for three years, the gallery will reopen on September 12, with a new interpretation of our treasured collection. Instead of using traditional themes to organize the gallery (utility, decoration, ceremony, and play), the reinstallation structures the collection using flexible themes such as, “Life, Death, and Faith” and “Legacies of Craftsmanship.” The gallery will also share the history of the Latin American folk art collection and frame it within the movement to promote and collect Latin American folk art in the twentieth century. The new title provides a more faithful translation of the original Spanish term for this genre (arte popular). The term “popular art” in this context also encompasses a broader range of Latin American and Spanish material culture, taking into consideration the remarkable size and diversity of SAMA’s Latin American art collection.

The Mapas Project
The Mapas Project has as its focus the digitization and study of colonial Mesoamerican pictorial manuscripts. The term "mapa" was used loosely in New Spain to refer to pictorials that may or may not have had a cartographic dimension, but often showed the territories or landscapes of indigenous communities. Because it is our aim to expand the number of manuscripts under study at this site, archives and museums are welcomed to offer additional manuscripts for incorporation. It is our hope that colleagues around the world will also offer their comments, alternative transcriptions, suggested translations, and interpretations, and that these will be incorporated, periodically, into these pages. The Mapas Project utilizes a online distance research environment (DRE) developed by the Wired Humanities and Feminist Humanities Projects of the Center for the Study of Women in Society at the University of Oregon to encourage and facilitate international collaboration among scholars, teachers, and interested communities.

La Biblioteca Digital Mexicana, BDMx, nació el 23 de noviembre de 2010 por decisión de cuatro importantes instituciones culturales mexicanas ligadas a la historia y a la cultura: el Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, el Archivo General de la Nación, La Biblioteca Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) y el Centro de Estudios de Historia de México CEHM-Carso. Estas instituciones decidieron unir esfuerzos para crear una biblioteca digital multi-institucional mexicana: aportarían documentos históricos y culturales relevantes de sus fondos, e invitarían a unirse a este esfuerzo a las numerosas bibliotecas y archivos mexicanos, y a los repositorios extranjeros que tengan importante documentación mexicana. Hoy en día muchos archivos y bibliotecas están digitalizando sus fondos y abriendo páginas de internet donde muestran una selección. La novedad de esta iniciativa es que es multi-institucional, y un proyecto sencillo y amigable enfocado exclusivamente en ofrecer al público documentos muy valiosos y poco conocidos, completos, con capacidad de ampliación y acompañados de introducciones útiles e historiográficamente serias. 
Early Americas Digital Archive (EADA)
The Early Americas Digital Archive (EADA) is a collection of electronic texts and links to texts originally written in or about the Americas from 1492 to approximately 1820. Open to the public for research and teaching purposes, EADA was published and supported by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) under the general editorship of Professor Ralph Bauer, at the University of Maryland at College Park. Intended as a long-term and inter-disciplinary project committed to exploring the intersections between traditional humanities research and digital technologies, it invited scholars from all disciplines to submit their editions of early American texts for publication on this site.
Mesolore
Mesolore is a bilingual resource for scholars and students of Mesoamerica. Our collection includes a total of six interactive indigenous documents from Central Mexico (the circa 1519 Matrícula de Tributos, the 1552 Lienzo de Tlaxcala, the 1555 Spanish-Nahuatl Vocabulario of Alonso de Molina) and from Oaxaca (the circa 1500 Codex Nuttall, the 1560 Codex Selden, the 1593 Spanish-Mixtec Vocabulario of Francisco de Alvarado). You can also browse our archives of alphabetic documents from the 1520s to the 1960s, take introductory tutorials on indigenous writing and culture in Central Mexico and Oaxaca, view an interactive Atlas of Mesoamerica, and watch or listen along to video and audio commentaries by scholars on Mesoamerica’s past and present.

Caribbean Anti-Colonial Thought Archive Project
This archive is a continuing project of the Trinity College Center for Caribbean Studies. The archive is being built and will continue to be built by Trinity College undergraduates under supervision by members of the Trinity College faculty. The ultimate content and form of the archive will be determined by their work. The archive building process could be referred to as growth by sedimentation. Each team of students working on the archive adds a new layer of content and/or formatting. The aspiration is for the archive eventually to become a valuable research tool for students and scholars interested in the Caribbean, colonialism, and anti-colonialism.
