Art in Latin America and Iberia – Spring Course

In Spring 2019, @uccsplas invited the Cork community to a series of talks on a wide range of artists from Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. The speakers will be members of our department who specialise in the many different cultures spread across the Spanish-speaking and Lusophone worlds.

You can find the programme below, which included some very well-known figures but also artists who have not enjoyed as much visibility in the past. 

February 13th to April 17th
