Who we are
The Society for Iberian Global Art (SIGA) was founded to promote the study of the arts, architecture, and visual cultures of the Iberian world (encompassing Spain, Portugal, Latin America, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Pacific) in the United States. The Society encourages and disseminates research in these fields as well as in the legacy of Hispanic and Portuguese studies in North America.
To fulfill the society’s mission to promote and disseminate scholarship on global Iberian art in the United States, SIGA offers three prizes that celebrate excellence in the field: The Eleanor Tufts Award, The Jonathan Brown Award and The Gridley McKim-Smith Award.
SIGA leads the Visual Arts issue in the Hispanic Research Journal and organizes a Triennial Conference and SIGA@CAA.
