    "María Amalia García offers original and unique insights into the developments of abstraction in Argentina and Brazil in the mid-twentieth century. This book fills a gap that has long existed in connecting the art historical dots between developments in abstraction on both sides of the Atlantic, south and north. It is an essential reference and an erudite, elegantly written volume."--Edward J. Sullivan, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor in the History of Art, New York University "The originality of this rigorous research by García lies in the fact that it offers a history of Argentine and Brazilian abstract art in regional rather than national terms. Each of the highly documented case studies in the book builds on the thesis that modern art, in those countries, was not exclusively created from European referents but also from a history, hitherto invisible, of exchanges, dialogues, and contacts among artists, as well as relationships between local diplomacies. This book is fundamental reading for everyone interested in understanding the ideological and cultural context of the period."--Inés Katzenstein, Curator of Latin American Art and Director of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Research Institute for the Study of Art from Latin America, The Museum of Modern Art "Innovative and extraordinarily documented, Abstract Crossings breaks with the frames of national histories to propose a comparative and regional perspective. Magazines, links between artists, exhibitions, institutional exchanges, and diplomacy reveal the ties between Argentinian and Brazilian postwar art and architecture. Abstract Crossings introduces a new and essential historiography of the abstract art of South America."--Andrea Giunta, author of Avant-Garde, Internationalism, and Politics: Argentine Art in the Sixties

    "Aesthetics and Politics in the Mexican Film Industry is the first English-language analysis of what some called a "renaissance" at the turn of the twenty-first century. It examines the years surrounding Mexico's presidential elections in 2000 and the fall of the ruling party after seventy one years in power in order to better understand a moment when politics and cinema shared the limelight. Moving beyond the international blockbusters, the research evaluates a broad selection of films, produced from the early 1990s to the present, to help demystify this period for scholars and students. It explains in clear language how production methods, audience demographics, and aesthetic approaches have changed throughout the past two decades of Mexican cinema andhow these changes relate to the country's transitions to a democratic political system and free-market economy"--

    Puerto Rican Light (Cueva Vientos), a new Dia Art Foundation commission by Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, is situated in a natural limestone cave system near the southern coast of Puerto Rico. This long-term site-specific work integrates the journey to the site as part of the viewer’s engagement. The companion publication eschews the traditional catalogue in favor of gathering contemporary scholarship on the issues surrounding the project. It pairs photographs of the journey to and from the site with newly commissioned texts, acting as both artist’s book and scholarly compilation. Political theorist Franco “Bifo” Berardi, novelist Juan López Bauzá, philosopher Timothy Morton, architectural historian Spyros Papapetros and anthropologist Michael Taussig contribute, among others. Text is in English and Spanish.
