Join associate curator Horace D. Ballard for an in-depth discussion about one of the works in the exhibition De los Andes al Caribe: El arte americano desde el imperio español/From the Andes to the Caribbean: American Art from the Spanish Empire, on view until July 30, 2023. Ballard will share insights about the ways in which the idea of “America” and the canon of American art are inseparable from the histories of Spanish colonialism across the hemisphere.

Featuring nearly 50 objects from the Harvard Art Museums collections and the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation, the exhibition explores how American material and mineral wealth fueled global trade, changed the course of visual history, and has had an impact on modern politics that continues today.

Led by:

Horace D. Ballard, Theodore E. Stebbins, Jr., Associate Curator of American Art
