Most of Latin American countries are celebrating 2 centuries of independence from the old continent, hence why Museums and Galleries keep on with Eurocentric curations? If there has been an intermingling, why ethnical art is still dissociated from western expressions? In a world of such instability who determines which is the north? This were some of the questions which guided the discussions of the first year of the Latinos Creative Society from the University of the Arts London. A year that through diverse activities such as a panel discussion, a donation of books for UAL’s Library collection, poetry reading, manifesto declaration, talk and exhibition at the Crypt Gallery in Euston sponsored by the EXTRA funding from the PG Community, attempted to decolonise the curriculum.
