Competition for the 2023 ALAA-Arvey Foundation Book Award

The Association for Latin American Art is pleased to sponsor the Annual ALAA-Arvey Foundation Book Award for an especially distinguished scholarly book published on the art of Latin America from the Pre-Columbian era to the present. The award is generously funded by the Arvey Foundation and consists of a citation and a $1,000 honorarium. We will present the award virtually at the annual meeting of the College Art Association in Chicago in February 2023. The name of the recipient will appear in the newsletters of both ALAA and CAA.

For the February 2023 Award, we will evaluate books on Latin American Art from Pre-Columbian to the present that meet the following criteria:

  • Publication date between September 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022
  • Books may be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese
  • Books may have one or more authors

The books will be evaluated by a three-person committee of accomplished art historians, each with expertise in a wide geographical and temporal range.

Please contact Ray Hernández-Durán at rhernand@unm.edu by October 1, 2022, to verify whether a prospective entry is eligible for the competition according to the above criteria. If the book is eligible, he will provide mailing addresses for the three committee members. Copies of books are to be sent directly to each, and must be received no later than November 15, 2022.

**The book committee does not consider exhibition catalogues. Please submit all inquiries regarding exhibition catalogues to the exhibition catalogue award chair Ray Hernández-Durán (rhernand@unm.edu)
