The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) was established in 2011 to increase the visibility of Latin American art on a global scale. Since its creation, ISLAA has played an international role in fostering advanced research and public engagement in this field.

ISLAA partners with universities and institutions to produce lectures and symposia with renowned scholars, contemporary artists, and graduate students. It supports publications spanning academic volumes, exhibition catalogues, and artists’ books. In 2019 ISLAA launched an exhibition series at its New York City research center and gallery space. Through these diverse activities, ISLAA aims to preserve and disseminate the legacy of Latin American cultural production—a mission that also includes 270, a series of short films and editioned objects based on interviews with artists.

ISLAA is honored to serve as the steward of an extensive archive that includes the papers of Jaime Davidovich among other canonical figures. Loans from ISLAA’s art collection appear regularly in museums and galleries in the US and internationally. In keeping with its mission to support original research and exhibitions, ISLAA welcomes scholars, curators, and students to utilize its on-site library of books, periodicals, personal papers, and ephemera.
