James Oles

James Oles is a specialist in Latin American art, focusing on modern Mexican art and architecture, through museum as well as academic projects. His books include South of the Border: Mexico in the American Imagination, 1914-1947 (Smithsonian Institution Press, 1993) and the recently-published survey Art and Architecture in Mexico (Thames & Hudson, 2013), the first of its kind in some fifty years; he was also published esssays on a wide variety of topics, from Frida Kahlo's early work to the art-deco architecture of Argentinian Francisco Salamone. Oles divides his time between the US and Mexico: he is Senior Lecturer in the Art Department at Wellesley College, and in 2002 was appointed adjunct curator of Latin American art at the Davis Museum, where he advises on exhibitions and acquisitions. In 2013 he organized an ongoing two-year curatorial project at the UNAM's Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco called "The Exposed Museum," a series of didactic exhibitions using the UNAM collections to allow audiences to understand the content, structure, and context of all exhibitions. Current research and curatorial projects include a show on Latin American art in Mexican collections; an exploration of Mexican-Turkish cultural relations; and a exhibition on the history of color photography in Mexico.
