"Marta Traba was particularly well suited for this analysis of Latin American art. Born in Argentina in 1930, she studied art history in Buenos Aires, Paris, and Rome. At age 23, she went to Colombia, where she initiated her career as a critic and writer in all fields of arts and letters. By the time she came to the United States in 1979 to lecture by invitation at some of the nation's top universities, she stood at the forefront of art criticism in Latin America and the Caribbean." "In his foreword to this book, former President of Colombia Belisario Betancur writes, "This valuable study represents a valiant effort to present a view of Latin American art as a coherent whole, rather than a disjointed summary of artistic achievement in the individual countries of the areas ... Making her way through the thicket of the area's social disturbances, cultural conflicts, abundant needs, and scanty satisfactions, Marta Traba comes somewhat closer to the utopian goal of assigning an identity to Latin American art.""--Jacket

Dos décadas vulnerables en las artes plásticas latinoamericanas, 1950-1970 by Marta Traba( Book )
20 editions published between 1973 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 145 libraries worldwide
"Obra de referencia indiscutida en el terreno del arte latinoamericano, la autora presenta aquí su controversial postura sobre el colonialismo cultural y el aplanamiento de las diferencias frente a los cuales propone resistirse. Marta Traba se pregunta en qué medida el arte latinoamericano se somete arbitrariamente a las cor rientes europeas y norteamericanas y asume preocupaciones que no son suyas. La autora realiza un original análisis de las vanguardias a partir de un mapa del continente en el que confronta las áreas abiertas de Buenos Aires y Caracas, expuestas a las influencias europeas, con las áreas cerradas de Bogotá y Lima, caracterizadas por el tiempo circular de sus tradiciones. Frente a lo que llama el arte de la entrega y la estética del deterioro, la prestigiosa y polémica crítica propone un arte de la resistencia."--Casadellibro

"Originally scheduled for publication in Caracas in 1975, this book was finally published 20 years later in Bogotá. Fifteen separate short essays about Latin American artists, among them José Luis Cuevas, Rodolfo Abularach, Fernando de Szyszlo, Agustín Fernández, and Luis Caballero make up the text of this publication. The book reflects Traba's idea of the multifaceted, often contradictory Latin American as seen through the arts, in opposition to what many would consider a defined personality or cultural character. Illustrated in color with accompanying biographical notes on every artist"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
