ReVisión: Art in the Americas

Jun 1, 2020 - Dec 31, 2020

Details

ReVisión: Art in the Americas is the first exhibition to open in the Martin Building.  A strong selection of nearly 180 objects from the museum’s ancient American and Latin American art collections, hailed as one of the best in the country, will tell a visually compelling narrative about the formation of the Americas from 100 B.C. to today.


The narrative will explore land, people, and place by linking ancient and contemporary artworks. These artworks address political and social issues at the heart of the America's cultural heritage and expand that narrative through voices that include women artists and ethnic minorities.


ReVisión is organized by DAM curators Victoria I. Lyall, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Art of the Ancient Americas, and Jorge Rivas Pérez, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Latin American Art. The majority of the works on view will be from the DAM’s permanent collection, with additional loans from institutions such as the Blanton Museum of Art, and the Pérez Museum.
