In conjunction with LACMA’s exhibition Archive of the World: Art and Imagination in Spanish America, 1500–1800, UCLA’s Center for 17th– & 18th–Century Studies, the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, and LACMA are co-organizing a major international scholar’s day. The event will enable scholars to present new research in this rapidly growing and vibrant field. Echoing the overall premise of the exhibition, presenters will take a close or “slow” look at individual artworks and the stories they tell from an artistic, historic, and material perspective. The presentations will also address various frameworks for viewing this material as part of an evolving artistic canon, as well as the valorization and commercial effects of this rapidly growing field of research and collecting.

Con motivo de la exposición del LACMA Archivo del mundo: arte e imaginación en Hispanoamérica, 1500-1800, el Center for 17th– & 18th–Century Studies y la William Andrews Clark Memorial Library de UCLA, junto con el LACMA, coorganizan un importante coloquio académico internacional. El evento brindará la oportunidad a varios especialistas de presentar sus nuevas investigaciones sobre esta área de estudio cada vez más relevante. Haciéndose eco del concepto general de la exposición y el catálogo, los participantes ofrecerán una “mirada lenta” o detenida de objetos individuales y analizarán las historias que emanan desde un punto de vista artístico, histórico y material. Las presentaciones también abordarán varios marcos conceptuales para analizar este material como parte de un canon artístico en vías de transformación, así como la valoración y efectos comerciales que está teniendo este campo de investigación y coleccionismo cada vez más destacado.
