Saturday, October 22, 2022, 2 pm, Lecture (Spanish), Adriana Herrera, Ph.D., will speak about the influence of the pre-Hispanic textile legacy on modern and contemporary fiber art in Europe and the United States and its presence in local artists working with textiles. Her presentation will include examples of this legacy in the work of leading artists across America and mention local artists who continue the thread of that influence. Her presentation will culminate with a dialogue about how the installation Ámate, by artist Karla Kantorovich, curated by Rina Gitlin for Piero Atchugarry Gallery, contains keys to Mesoamerican ancestral cultures in its contemporary artistic language.
Admission is free with registration. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Aluna Art Foundation.
