Virtual Student Guide Tour: The Hybridity of Hispanic Art

By Harvard Art Museums

Brandon Calderón explores how Hispanic art emerged from a mixture of Spanish colonization and the resistance of Indigenous traditions.

In this half-length photomontage portrait, a young man smiles at the camera and his hands frame a small, dark painting that hovers before him. He wears a cap, hoodie, and backpack. The painting is a full-length portrait of a man wearing a gold and black outfit with a neck ruff.

Additional information

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.
