Vuk Vuković Moderates SCAH Program on Video Art in Latin America

On March 7, 2023 graduate student Vuk Vuković moderated a Society of Contemporary Art Historian's program with Elena Shtromberg, associate professor of art history at the University of Utah, and Glenn Phillips, senior curator of modern and contemporary collections and head of exhibitions at the Getty Research Institute, on their practice of curating and writing on video art from Latin America. The discussion centered on their recent volume, Encounters in Video Art in Latin America, which approaches the subject thematically in a sequence of essays and interviews, presenting video art from different periods and regions of Latin America. In addition, we will address their robust research ranging from visits with artists, curators, and scholars in Latin America, to organizing several groundbreaking events since 2013, like Video Art in Latin America at LAXART (September 16–December 16, 2017) as part of Getty’s city-wide art initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. This was a SCAH-members only event, which was recorded and it will be available to SCAH members at https://scahweb.org/
