In The Politics of Taste Ana María Reyes examines the works of Colombian artist Beatriz González and Argentine-born art critic, Marta Traba, who championed González's art during Colombia's National Front coalition government (1958–74). During this critical period in Latin American art, artistic practice, art criticism, and institutional objectives came into strenuous yet productive tension. While González’s triumphant debut excited critics who wanted to cast Colombian art as modern, sophisticated, and universal, her turn to urban lowbrow culture proved deeply unsettling. Traba praised González's cursi (tacky) recycling aesthetic as daringly subversive and her strategic localism as resistant to U.S. cultural imperialism. Reyes reads González's and Traba's complex visual and textual production and their intertwined careers against Cold War modernization programs that were deeply embedded in the elite's fear of the masses and designed to avert Cuban-inspired revolution. In so doing, Reyes provides fresh insights into Colombia's social anxieties and frustrations while highlighting how interrogations of taste became vital expressions of the growing discontent with the Colombian state.

A critical rethinking of the way canons are defined, constructed, dismantled, and revised. A century ago, all art was evaluated through the lens of European classicism and its tradition. This volume explores and questions the foundations of the European canon, offers a critical rethinking of ancient and classical art, and interrogates the canons of cultures and regions that have often been left at the margins of art history. It underscores the historical and geographical diversity of canons and the local values underlying them. Twelve international scholars consider how canons are constructed and contested, focusing on the relationship between canonical objects and the value systems that shape their hierarchies. Deploying an array of methodologies—including archaeological investigations, visual analysis, and literary critique—the authors examine canon formation throughout the world, including Africa, India, East Asia, Mesoamerica, South America, ancient Egypt, classical Greece, and Europe. Global studies of art, which are dismantling the traditionally Eurocentric canon, promise to make art history more inclusive. But enduring canons cannot be dismissed. This volume raises new questions about the importance of canons—including those from outside Europe—for the wider discipline of art history.

Ao combinar insights historiográficos com novos métodos de pesquisa quantitativa e visualização de dados, o livro Historiographical Revisions: Modern Brazilian Architecture (Revisões Historiográficas: Arquitetura Moderna Brasileira) oferece, de imediato, uma valiosa ferramenta para iniciantes no estudo da arquitetura, na história da arquitetura e na história e, ao mesmo tempo, um roteiro para futuros percursos em estudos avançados. Os métodos de análise quantitativa são sugestivos para a história da arquitetura moderna em geral. Mas mais importante ainda: esta antologia, de autoria de importantes pesquisadores e de novos estudantes da arquitetura brasileira, oferece insights sobre os complexos processos pelos quais funcionavam a produção arquitetônica e a avaliação histórica, de forma simbiótica e distinta no Brasil do século 20. Combining historiographic insights with new methods of quantitative research and data visualization, Historiographical Revisions: Modern Brazilian Architecture offers at once an invaluable tool for beginning students in architecture, architectural history, and history and, at the same time, a roadmap for future trajectories for advanced research. The methods of quantitative analysis are suggestive for modern architectural history in general. But even more importantly, this anthology, authored by both leading scholars and new students of Brazilian architecture, provides insights into the complex processes by which architectural production and historical assessment worked in symbiotic and distinctive ways in 20th century Brazil.

Octavio Paz (México, 1914–1998) was one of the foremost poets and essayists of the twentieth century. Read in translations into many of the world’s languages, Paz received numerous awards and prizes during his lifetime, participated in major artistic and political movements of the twentieth century, served as Mexico’s ambassador in India (1962–1968), and was the editor of Plural and Vuelta, two literary journals of prominent influence in Mexico, Latin America, and Spain. In 1990 Paz was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. This book of essays is a commemoration of Octavio Paz on the first centenary of his birth, a celebration undertaken with Paz’s distinguishing legacy: criticism, internationally inclusive, and open to differing viewpoints. The Willow and the Spiral: Essays on Octavio Paz and the Poetic Imagination contains studies in English and in Spanish by top-ranking Paz scholars from various continents and wide-ranging literary traditions, as well as by an emerging generation of critics who approach the work of Octavio Paz from diverse and recent theoretical methods. Specially written for this volume, the fourteen essays are in-depth studies of Paz’s poetry and essays in relation to art, eroticism, literary history, politics, the art of translation, and to Paz’s life-long reflections on world cultures and civilizations as represented by China, France, India, Japan, the United States and, among others, Mesoamerica. The essays range from new critical analyses of Piedra de sol (Sunstone) and Blanco, to studies of Renga, the haiku tradition and, among other topics, Marcel Duchamp and the literary Avant-Garde. This book will be of importance to Paz scholars, teachers, students, and the general reader interested in Octavio Paz and in topics related to artistic, literary, and cultural movements that shaped the twentieth century and that continue to inspire and steer artists and writers in the twenty-first century.

León Ferrari and Mira Schendel are among the most significant Latin American artists of the 20th century. Active during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in the neighbouring countries of Argentina and Brazil, they found inspiration in the written word and in the eloquence of spoken language. Their striking visual production coincided with a period of significant focus on language by philosophers and artists. León Ferrari & Mira Schendel is published to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of these two artists in the United States, presenting new insights on the artists' deconstruction of language through a visual repertoire and examining the connections and collisions between the visual arts, the written form, politics and religion.
