ontemporary Art Collections in Latin America and the Caribbean – Regional Survey 2021

Latin America and the Caribbean are home to a vibrant heritage that includes World Heritage sites, diverse and prominent contemporary cultural expressions, ancient cultures and subcultures, strong links to the environment, and rich indigenous knowledge reserves. ICCROM’s regional programme for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) aims to promote the integrated and sustainable management of this heritage, paying particular attention to major region-specific issues - one of which is contemporary heritage. This survey was created to assess the needs and opportunities concerning the conservation and management of contemporary art collections in the LAC region. Its results will be used to underpin the development of effective and integrated capacity-building initiatives on this topic at the regional level.
