Americas Society presents the second part of This Must Be the Place: Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975, a group exhibition exploring the work of a generation of migrants from Latin America and the Caribbean who created and exhibited in New York City between 1965 and 1975.
It was in New York that many of these artists recognized themselves as Latin Americans, something they did not necessarily realize back home. By being in contact with migrants from other parts of the continent, they forged a new sense of self as Latin Americans that resisted the stereotypes imposed on them by American culture. Part II of the exhibition displays new works by the same artists featured in Part I and focuses on this exploration of identities; many of the new works on view utilize the body as theme and medium.
The presentation of This Must Be the Place: Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975 is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. Additional support is provided by the Smart Family Foundation of New York, Fundación Ama Amoedo, and The Cowles Charitable Trust. Americas Society acknowledges the generous support from the Arts of the Americas Circle members: Estrellita B. Brodsky, Virginia Cowles Schroth, Emily A. Engel, Diana Fane, Galeria Almeida e Dale, Isabella Hutchinson, Carolina Jannicelli, Vivian Pfeiffer from Phillips, Gabriela Pérez Rocchietti, Erica Roberts, Diana López and Herman Sifontes, and Edward J. Sullivan.
The exhibition is curated by Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Director and Chief Curator of Visual Arts at Americas Society.
