Destination: Latin America offers a journey through twentieth- and twenty-first-century Latin American art. Drawn from the collection of the Neuberger Museum of Art, the exhibition is organized in five sections. The first includes work by artists affiliated with the artistic revolution that emerged after the Mexican Revolution; section two features sculpture and painting by key South American artists exploring color, form, space, and motion; section three features work by Caribbean and South American artists inspired by African art, Surrealism, and Magical Realism; section four addresses the challenges faced by artists living under the dictatorships of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, when most of South America was under military control; and section five concentrates on contemporary artists looking at themes of history, globalization, violence, and social criticism.

Destination: Latin America is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York, and curated by Patrice Giasson, the Alex Gordon Associate Curator of Art of the Americas, with the curatorial assistance of Marianelly Neumann, and research assistance by Annabel Rhodeen and Carmelita Diaz.
