This lecture, given by UO Assistant Professor of Spanish Mayra Bottaro, focuses on the artistic work and vision of Argentine artist Xul Solar (1887-1963) and how it engages early twentieth-century discourses on abstract art, new technology, and linguistic explorations. Dr. Bottaro’s lecture is based on her academic study as a 2018-2019 Oregon Humanities Center Faculty Research Fellow.
