About this Event

1519, the Arrival of Strangers: Indigenous Art and Voices following the Spanish Conquest of Mesoamerica

Symposium in honor of Miguel León-Portilla

October 3–4, 2019, Getty Center & October 5, 2019, Cal State LA

Our 2019 Mesoamerican Symposium is organized in collaboration between the Art History Society of California State University, Los Angeles and the Getty Research Institute with the generous support of the Seaver Institute.

This event is in homage to the renowned Mexican scholar Miguel León-Portilla. His book La visión de los vencidos, translated to English as Broken Spears, presents the Nahua viewpoint of the Spanish Conquest and is one of the most influential books in the field of Mesoamerican Studies.

This year's quincentenial of Hernán Cortés's arrival in Mesoamerica provides an impetus to explore perspectives on the Spanish conquest of Mexico and the subsequent transcultural processes that played out in New Spain's artistic production. The three-day symposium highlights the great cultural, historical, and artistic achievements of indigenous peoples of New Spain.

The event will be taking place at the Getty Center and California State University, Los Angeles.

Separate reservations are required for each day.
