ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
“Painted Cloth: Fashion and Ritual in Colonial Latin America addresses the social roles of textiles and their visual representations in different media produced in Bolivia, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela during the 1600s and 1700s. Beyond emphasizing how aesthetic traditions of European and Indigenous origin were woven together during this period, the exhibition showcases the production, use, and meaning of garments as well as the ways they were experienced both in civil and religious settings.

This exhibition is organized by Rosario I. Granados, Marilynn Thoma Associate Curator, Art of the Spanish Americas”

Alongside the lavish display of fabrics and garments featured in the ‘Painted Cloth’ exhibition, the Blanton Museum of Art is hosting a number of virtual conversations on 1600 – 1700s Latin America and the pieces on display. Learn about the opulent fabrics that were used in religious and secular swathes of society, which tell a complicated story of conquest and colonialism. Expect to learn something new about this lesser-known period of art history through untold stories from an exciting line-up of curators and speakers.
