Event description

Description

Joanne Pillsbury, curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, explores the development of luxury culture in the ancient Andes, from the earliest ornaments in gold created over 3,000 years ago in Peru, to the spectacular achievements of artists in the royal courts of the Inca, including Machu Picchu.

This talk will focus on the current exhibit at the Getty Center Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas, curated by Dr. Pillsbury, and casts new light on the brilliance of ancient American artists and their legacy. Golden Kingdoms will be on exhibit at the Getty Center until January 2018, and move to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in February 2018. Dr. Pillsbury will be introduced by Dr. Christine Hastorf, curator of South American archaeology at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology.
