Encuentros: Latinx + Latin American Acquisitions

Exhibition Website

Encuentros: Latinx + Latin American Acquisitions draws together recently acquired works by Latinx and Latin American artists for a dynamic encounter of materials, mediums, and styles. 

The show taps into emerging themes within the DMA’s collection, such as the institution’s renewed interest in arte popular, or Popular Art. 

Encuentros highlights new acquisitions of key works by artists such as Laura Aguilar, Miguel Covarrubias, Raúl Guerrero, and Robert Lugo while also emphasizing visual connections across time and culture by juxtaposing collection works by historic artists, such as Carlos Mérida and Gunther Gerzso, with the work of living artists, such as Leslie Martinez and rafa esperaza. ​
