East-West Interchanges in American Art: Virginia Anderson

Smithsonian American Art Museum
Virginia Anderson, Diane and Michael Maher Assistant Curator of American Art, Fogg Museum, Harvard Art Museum "'A Semi-Chinese Picture': The Encounter of American Painter Hubert Vos and the Empress Dowager of China" "A Long and Tumultuous Relationship" East-West Interchanges in American Art October 1--2, 2009 This two-day symposium at the Smithsonian American Art Museum explored the complicated interactions between American and Asian artists and visual traditions from the eighteenth century to the present. The history of American art has long been discussed primarily in terms of European training and influence. When scholars have looked eastward, they often have considered the Asian influence on art of the United States as a unidirectional and limited development, suggesting that Asian culture was monolithic and unchanging while characterizing American artists as dynamic and original in their ability to absorb and meld the best of diverse global outlooks.

Introduction - Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art

Smithsonian American Art Museum
In this series, E. Carmen Ramos, curator of Latino art, discusses the exhibition "Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art" at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. This episode is an introduction. "Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art" presents the rich and varied contributions of Latino artists in the United States since the mid-twentieth century, when the concept of a collective Latino identity began to emerge. The exhibition is drawn entirely from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's pioneering collection of Latino art. It explores how Latino artists shaped the artistic movements of their day and recalibrated key themes in American art and culture. http://www.americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/archive/2013/our_america/
