CLLAS Research Series: Faculty Collaboration Research Grant

The Expression of the Latino/a Experience Through Album Cover Art: 1940-1990, a Conversation between Philip W. Scher and Pablo E. Yglesias, Co-curators of the Exhibition” 

This CLLAS Research Series presentation will discuss the cultural and political dimensions of Latinx presence in the US seen through Latin album cover art. 

Visual Clave is connected to the exhibit with the same title and has been organized by Philip W. Scher, UO Professor of Anthropology and Folklore and Public Culture and Divisional Dean for Social Sciences, and Pablo E. Yglesias, a Northampton, MA-based Cuban-American researcher, writer, musician, artist, and DJ. The exhibit could be seen at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art through April 21, 2019 and is supported by AUO’s College of Arts and Sciences, CLLAS, and a JSMA Academic Support Grant.

Visual Clave is organized by Philip W. Scher, UO Professor of Anthropology and Folklore and Public Culture and Divisional Dean for Social Sciences, and Pablo E. Yglesias, a Northampton, MA-based Cuban-American researcher, writer, musician, artist, and DJ. An expanded version of the exhibition was on view previously at the Student Union Art Gallery at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst; the Bronx Music Heritage Center, NY; and Picture Farm Gallery, Brooklyn, NY. Visual Clave takes its inspiration and intellectual structure from Yglesias’ book Cocinando: 50 Years of Latin Album Cover Art (Princeton Architectural Press, 2005). 

All album covers reproduced courtesy of their respective record labels.

The talk is at 3:30 p.m. on April 11 in the Ford Lecture Hall at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. Live music by Malanga starting at 4:30. Light refreshments to be served. 1430 Johnson Lane, University of Oregon campus. jsma.uoregon.edu 541.346.3027
