Visual artists, curators, and critics sought to fuse art and politics- to broaden the definition of art to encompass happenings and assemblages- and, above all, to achieve international recognition for new, cutting-edge Argentine art. A bestseller in Argentina, Avant-Garde, Internationalism, and Politics is an examination of the 1960s as a brief historical moment when artists, institutions, and critics joined to promote an international identity for Argentinas visual arts. Andrea Giunta analyzes projects specifically designed to internationalize Argentinas art and avant-garde during the 1960s: the importation of exhibitions of contemporary international art, the sending of Argentine artists abroad to study, the organization of prize competitions involving prestigious international art critics, and the exportation of exhibitions of Argentine art to Europe and the United States.About the Author:Andrea Giunta is a professor of art history at the Universidad de San Martin and an associate professor of art history at the Universidad de Buenos Aires
