In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Brandon Calderón ’23 will explore how Hispanic art emerged from a mixture of violent Spanish colonization and the resistance of Indigenous traditions and testimony. Starting with Indigenous pottery from the Moche civilization of ancient Peru and ending with a 17th-century carved crucifix likely from the colonial Spanish Philippines, Calderón will stress the agency of “New World artists” and how they worked within and against the Spanish Empire.
