La línea continua: The Judy and Charles Tate Collection of Latin American Art celebrates a significant moment in the history of patronage at the Blanton Museum of Art and in the study of Latin American art. Judy and Charles Tate are among the University of Texas at Austin’s most exemplary alumni and friends. Their most recent contribution to UT comes in the form of the gift of their collection of modern and contemporary Latin American art to the Blanton. The Tates’ gift promises to foster new opportunities for study across disciplines and will greatly enhance the holdings of the museum, which has been a leader in the field of Latin American art since the late 1960s.
This fully illustrated catalogue of the collection will include approximately 120 works of art by many of the artists who were key to the creation of modernism in Latin America, including Tarsila do Amaral, Lygia Clark, Frida Kahlo, Wifredo Lam, Carlos Mérida, Armando Reverón, Diego Rivera, Xul Solar, and Joaquín Torres-García. The catalogue will also feature contributions from UT president William Powers, Blanton curator of Latin American art Beverly Adams, and UT art and art history graduate students, as well as Blanton director Simone Wicha in conversation with Judy and Charles Tate and Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, director of the Patricia Cisneros Collection.
