Curator Pablo León de la Barra discusses the role of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative in contextualizing, connecting, and exposing art from all regions of Latin America. Talking about some of the exhibitions he has been involved in organizing around the world over the past decade, León de la Barra reveals how, for him, curatorial practice has been a way to address significant themes and practices, from the academic and historical to the more playful. He also details his interest in the Guggenheim’s own history of engagement with Latin American art, focusing in particular on Thomas Messer’s 1968 exhibition The Emergent Decade: Latin American Painters and Painting in the 1960s.
