ALONSO-GONZALEZ, Tania Gissel  y  MORADO-MACIAS, César. Relevance of the institutional theory of art and social capital to explain the role of the Faculty of Visual Arts (FAV) of the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon (UANL) in the artistic practice of Monterrey, Mexico. Índex [online]. 2018, n.5, pp.144-153. ISSN 2477-9199.

Monterrey´s art process implied a heterogeneous growth. Its geographic location, industrial characteristics and cultural attributes shaped the local artistic practice as well as the main characters inside this scene. Considering the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (UANL) as the pioneer of the professionalization of the visual arts specialists, the Facultad de Artes Visuales (FAV) case will be taken as an example, in order to understand the nature of one of the most important agents in Monterrey´s art history, based on George Dickie´s art institutional theory, where the configuration of the visual art groups is assumed. Based on this theoretical approach, the concept of social capital proposed by Pierre Bourdieu will be linked onto this work to explain the formation and structure of the visual art’s networks that help with their professional projection.

Palabras clave : Art Institution; social capital; Monterrey; visual artists.
