Inspired by the exhibition ReVisión: Art in the Americas, the 20th Annual Mayer Center Symposium will explore the art of the Americas as a single interwoven story by connecting history, legend, memory, and the present.

About the exhibition

ReVisión: Art in the Americas is one of the first exhibitions to open in the renovated Martin Building. A strong selection of nearly 180 objects from the museum’s Ancient American and Latin American Art collections, hailed as one of the best in the country, will tell a visually compelling narrative about the formation of the Americas from 100 B.C. to today.

The thematic presentation will explore land, people, and place by linking ancient and contemporary artworks that address political and social issues at the heart of the region’s cultural heritage as well as expand the narrative through voices that include women artists and contemporary voices that speak to the diversity of the Americas.

ReVisión is organized by DAM curators Victoria I. Lyall, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Art of the Ancient Americas, and Jorge Rivas Pérez, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Latin American Art. The majority of the works on view will be from the DAM’s permanent collection, with additional loans from institutions such as the Blanton Museum of Art, and the Pérez Museum.
