Dear readers, since our December 3, 2013 announcement, the ICAA has published more than 1,500 new documents! At this point we have surpassed the 5,500-document milestone and are working hard to add more than 1,000 new sources in 2015.

Over the last six months we have focused our efforts on uploading the almost 1,500 documents researched by the Colombian and Brazilian teams. The wide network of Colombian and Brazilian researchers responsible for the documents, headed by Carmen María Jaramillo (independent curator and art historian) at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá and Ana Maria Belluzzo (curator and art history professor at Faculdade de Arquitetura e Urbanismo da Universidade de São Paulo) at FAPESP (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) succeeded in recovering primary texts by significant theorists, art historians, and artists of these two countries. Readers interested in Colombia are now able to research documents by Beatriz González, Oscar Muñoz, Eduardo Serrano, Marta Traba, José Roca, among many other Colombian and international contributors.  Adding to our group of holdings related to Brazilian Constructivist art and given to the ICAA by Brazilian art collector Adolpho Leirner, our digital archive now features documents by Mário de Andrade, Anita Mafaltti, Oswald de Andrade, Waldemar Cordeiro, Ferreira Gullar, Mário Pedrosa, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Clark, Mário  Schenberg, Frederico Morais, Rodrigo Naves, among many other Brazilian contributors. Our Brazilian materials will continue to expand in 2015 as we work through the bulk of the essential primary and critical sources recovered by our team in Brazil.
