Course Overview: (Some Indigenous Content - less then 25%

This course introduces Women in Latin American Art from its Pre-Columbian beginnings, through the twentieth century, to the art of today. The emphasis is on painting and sculpture of the twentieth century. Includes Indigenous women especially the Inka Coya and artists like Frida Kahlo and Maria Izquierdo who refer to their Mexican heritage. There will be readings, lectures, museum and gallery visits and special events associated with the class and the Frost Art Museum at FIU. Latin America is a huge area with a rich tradition and art movements that vary from country to country so this course is meant to be a survey and not at all inclusive.
