Latin American Avant Garde Collection

This webpage is a browsing tool for the Latin American Avant Garde (LAAG) collection located in the Katherine W. Dumke Fine Arts & Architecture Library on Level 2 of the Marriott Library.

Spanning five decades and three continents, the 44 works included in the LAAG collection represent a diverse array of cultural backgrounds and artistic practices.

With basic descriptions and sample images of each work, the browsing tool enables users to conveniently begin exploring the particulars and commonalities of the collection.

The ‘Refine by’ function on the left-hand allows users to appreciate some of the more readily identifiable similarities. Clicking on the image of a work takes the user to a page with more detailed information and images. Clicking on the call number routes the user to the work’s location in the Marriot Library’s catalog.

The descriptions and images are intentionally basic; there is simply no substitute for handling and seeing these works in-person. Users are encouraged to visit the Fine Arts & Architecture desk, where any and all of these works can be viewed, inspected, and experienced first-hand.
