History of Art and Architecture

Fulbright Fellowship Awarded to Diana Flatto

HAA graduate student Diana Flatto has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for her field work in Argentina, where she will conduct research on the visual art associated with artists political networks in the 1930s and 1940s. As the threat of right-wing nationalist regimes grew in Argentina, including the 1930 and 1943 military coups, artists there played a prominent role in connecting with resistance groups in countries including Uruguay, Bolivia, Chile, and others through organizations such as the Agrupación de Intelectuales, Artistas, Periodistas y Escritores (A.I.A.P.E.).

Her research will be conducted primarily in the Centro de Estudios Espigas at the Universidad Nacional de San Martín, the Centro de Documentación e Investigación de la Cultura de Izquierdas en Argentina, Fundación Forner-Bigatti, and the Biblioteca del Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires as well as the archives of the Museo Municipal de Arte Juan Carlos Castagnino and Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata.
