Iglesias Lukin, Aime
Aimé Iglesias Lukin is a Ph.D. candidate specialized on modern and contemporary Latin American art. Her dissertation focuses on Latin American artists living and working in New York during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The project seeks to map connections between spaces of action, institutions, exhibitions, and collective practices that demonstrate the significance of these artists’ networks in the city. Observing their processes of identity reconfiguration, her dissertation analyzes topics of travel, exile, and identity in artworks by Jaime Davidovich, Leandro Katz, Eduardo Costa, Marta Minujín, and Alejandro Puente from Argentina; Rafael Ferrer from Puerto Rico; Hélio Oiticica and Anna Bella Geiger from Brazil; Juan Downey from Chile and Luis Camnitzer from Uruguay. She completed her M.A. at The Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, and her undergraduate studies in Art History at the Universidad de Buenos Aires.
