Behind The Scenes in The Launching of the Latin American Digital Archives


Houston Jan 20.- The MFAH along with the ICAA organized a colloquium about the arts to celebrate the launching of the Latin American Digital Archives. For the first time in history, we will have free access to more than 10, 000 documents about Latin American Art and Latino Art. 

The mission of the ICAA, which was established in 2001 at the MFAH, is to pioneer research of the diverse artistic production of Latin American and Latino artists—from Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the United States.

Literal had the opportunity to talk with some of the organizers, participants and curators who, behind the scenes, made this historical event possible.
