Elite Art Worlds

(p.1) Introduction
(p.iii) Elite Art Worlds

Eduardo Herrera

Oxford University Press

This introduction presents the Centro Latinoamericano de Altos Estudios Musicales (CLAEM) at the intersecton of the three key themes in the book Elite Art Worlds. First, understanding how local and international philanthropy providing funding for CLAEM articulated foreign policy, private interests, and cultural diplomacy. Second, how diverse models of musical avant-gardism were followed, consumed, and rearticulated and then embodied, resignified and institutionalized in Latin America, problematizing the idea of a single homogenous avant-garde. And third, the ways in which participants of CLAEM navigated a regional discourse about identity and professional positioning labeled Latin Americanism. The chapter concludes with a discussion and problematization of the idea of elites and art worlds.
