During the Fall of 2018, eight students mounted their own digital exhibitions for the “Art as Protest in Spain and Latin America” class. As the curator, each student chose and researched five objects centered on an individual theme, writing descriptions for each work and an introduction to their exhibit. The result is an artistic tour through the most important and controversial matters affecting the Spanish-speaking world today.
We invite you to explore these diverse and striking exhibitions. You can begin with the “Exhibit Pages,” where each student has contributed the introduction to their exhibit and links to the five objects with their descriptions.
We hope that these exhibitions allow the viewer to reflect on how art can be an effective form of protest and resistance throughout the Spanish-speaking world. — Professor Sara J. Brenneis
