The Language of Objects in the Art of the Americas

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Where: E-Building, E-242


Please mark your calendars for the first in a series of lectures open to the college community as part of a Humanities Initiatives grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the Enrichment of Latin American Studies at LaGuardia Community College. The event features Dr. Edward Sullivan, former Dean of Humanities and Director of the Fine Arts Institute at New York University and the author/editor of numerous books on Latin American art and culture. He will speak about the way in which simple objects convey complex cultural, political and emotional messages in the art of the Americas.


Edward Sullivan is the Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of the History of Art at the Institute of Fine Arts & the Department of Art History, New York University. He is a scholar in modern and contemporary art of Latin America and has authored numerous books and exhibition catalogues on the subject of the arts of the Americas. He has also curated exhibitions in museums in the U.S., Latin America and Europe, including “Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller & His Transatlantic world” (Brooklyn Museum and tour, 2015-16). His more recent publications include The Language Of Objects In The Art Of The Americas (Yale U Press 2007); Nueva York: 1613-1945, ed. (The New York Historical Society 2012); From San Juan To Paris And Back: Francisco Oller And Caribbean Art In The Era Of Impressionism (Yale U Press 2014), and The Americas Revealed: Collecting Colonial And Modern Latin American Art In The U.S. (editor: forthcoming from Penn State Press and The Frick Collection Studies in the History of Art Collecting in America, June 2018).

Teach-In: Confronting Systemic Racism and Privilege

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Where: M-Building, Little Theatre


“Although racism does, of course, occur in individual acts, these acts are part of a larger system of interacting and interlocking dynamics. The focus on individual instances prevents the personal, interpersonal, cultural, historical, and structural analysis that is necessary in order to challenge this larger system.” -Robin DiAngelo, What Does It Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy (2016)


We invite you and your students to join us for an afternoon of conversation, reflection and learning. While few classes meet during this time, please feel free to bring your class.


The event Program will include:

Voices of LaGuardia
Stories gathered from faculty, staff, and students, and presented by theater students.

Exploring and Confronting Racism 

  • Anti-Racism Teaching and Activism – Dr. Joni Schwartz, Humanities Department, LaGuardia
  • Unconscious Bias – David Peters, ENCORE.com/ Diversity Trainer
  • Contemporary White Nationalist Organizing – Dr. Spencer Sunshine, Fellow, Political Research Associates
  • Systemic Racism – Dr. Alex Welcome, Department of Social Sciences, LaGuardia


The event is sponsored by Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), LaGuardia, a group of faculty and staff who identify as allies in the fight against racism and privilege at LaGuardia and beyond. SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals that organizes and moves white people to action as part of a multi-racial coalition for justice.
