This collection of essays—the first major account of surrealism in Latin America that covers both literary and visual production—explores the role the movement played in the construction and recuperation of cultural identities and the ways artists and writers contested, embraced, and adapted surrealist ideas and practices. Surrealism in Latin America provides new Latin American–centric scholarship, not only about surrealism’s impact on the region but also about the region’s impact on surrealism. It reconsiders the relation between art and anthropology, casts new light on the aesthetics of “primitivism,” and makes a strong case for Latin American artists and writers as the inheritors of a movement that effectively went underground after World War II. In so doing, it expands our understanding of important, fascinating figures who are less well known than their counterparts active in Europe and New York. Deriving from a conference held at the Getty Research Institute, the book is rich in new materials drawn from the GRI’s diverse Mexican and South American surrealist collections, which include the archives of Vicente Huidobro, Enrique Gómez-Correa, César Moro, Enrique Lihn, and Emilio Westphalen.

This book looks at the way in which certain encounters between Latin American and European intellectuals in the first half of the twentieth century shaped Latin Americas' representation in the arts. It reviews the struggle of Latin American artists and art critics to find an 'appropriate language' for the expression and representation of their culture. Part one examines some of the Latin American art exhibitions that took place in the decade of the 1980s. It elaborates on the stereotypes that they perpetuated and traces their origins to Alejo Carpentier's theory of Lo real maravilloso americano. Part two explores the complex relationship between Surrealism and Latin America, emphasizing the issues that arose from the struggle of intellectuals and artists to find the appropriate way for the cultural representation of Latin America. While some rejected the French Avant-garde movement, accusing it of colonialism, others - especially in Martinique and Haiti - saw the movement as a 'liberating force'. Part three centers on Cuban painter Wifredo Lam. His work changed the ideal of art produced in Latin America and anticipated contemporary theories of Creolization.

Paris was the artistic capital of the world in the 1920s and '30s, providing a home and community for the French and international avant-garde. Latin American artists contributed to and reinterpreted nearly every major modernist movement that took place in the creative center of Paris between World War I and World War II, including Cubism (Diego Rivera), Surrealism (Antonio Berni and Roberto Matta), and Constructivism (Joaquin Torres-Garcia). Yet their participation in the Paris art scene has remained largely overlooked until now. This book examines their collective role, surveying the work of both household names and an extraordinary array of lesser-known artists. Michele Greet illuminates the significant ways in which Latin American expatriates helped establish modernism and, conversely, how a Parisian environment influenced the development of Latin American artistic identity.
