On Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016, AICA/USA members are invited to the AICA-USA 2016 Annual Meeting. It will take place at the Jewish Museum, where we are invited to a special preview of Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist (1909-1994) that coincides with the Museum's press preview. The AICA-USA program will also include a brief business meeting, a catered lunch, and a discussion, "Latin American Art: A Critical Conversation," moderated by Phyllis Tuchman:

As AICA-USA members become increasingly familiar with art from South America, we take the occasion of the Burle Marx exhibition at the Jewish Museum to consider how our colleagues from South America approach art criticism. We are delighted that Gabriela Rangel, Director of Visual Arts and Chief Curator at the Americas Society, will talk about Burle Marx, the Americas Society, exhibition catalogues she has written on Marta Minujin, Carlos Cruz-Diaz, and Juan Downey, and other relevant matters with Phyllis Tuchman, former AICA-USA president.  Another speaker is to be announced soon.

The specific program schedule for the AICA-USA 2016 Annual Meeting is as follows:


12:30 - 1:30 AICA Preview of Roberto Burle Marx exhibition
