Javier Rivero Ramos
Javier Rivero is a first-year graduate student focusing on modern Latin American art. His research explores the limits and possibilities of international networks of artistic exchange that linked artists to audiences and colleagues beyond their geographic reach.
He received his B.A. in English Literature from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and his M.A. in Art History from Hunter College, CUNY. His master’s thesis considered the assembling magazines of Edgardo Antonio Vigo and their use of postal networks as an artistic strategy that transcended the regime of censorship and isolation that Argentina endured in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Javier has worked in the curatorial department of several museums and institutions both in Mexico and abroad such as Museo Tamayo, Museo Jumex and the Hunter East Harlem Gallery. He has been the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship, a FONCA/CONACYT scholarship for studies abroad and the Fundación Jumex Scholarship.
