Welcome to the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) Library and Archives Finding Aids.

About this Site

The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) supports the study and visibility of Latin American art. ISLAA recognizes Latin American artists and cultural movements as integral to the trajectory of twentieth- and twenty-first-century art. We seek to expand these narratives by creating opportunities for researchers, curators, and the public through grants, exhibitions, publications, and our art and archival collections.

The ISLAA Library and Archives finding aids made available on this site provide information about the content and arrangement of archival collections, allowing users to identify and request materials relevant to their research. Use this site to browse, explore, and discover these primary sources.
