Devotional Cultures: Opening Reception and Gallery Talk

Devotional Cultures traces European Catholic imagery and ritual practices as they took root and evolved in Latin America, Central America, and the American Southwest. Featuring masterworks from the collection of the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, the exhibition demonstrates that, rather than existing as copies of European art, Spanish Colonial artworks reveal layers of global influences and responses to those influences over time, resulting in a distinctive style.

Curated from the collection of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center by Michael Brown, Research Associate, Denver Art Museum New World Department and Rebecca Tucker, Associate Professor of Art History.  

Devotional Cultures: Spanish Colonial Art in the Southwest is made possible by the generous contributions of the Sheffer Fund for Roman Catholic Studies, the Stillman Fund for Exhibitions, the Office of the President, the Hulbert Center for Southwest Studies, and the Colorado College Cultural Attractions Fund.

Opening Rection: FRIDAY NOVEBER 1, 2013 @ 4:30p in COBURN GALLERY

In part, the title hōl refers to the ‘negative space; of a decades-long hiatus from creating art and the fullness that a more recent and unexpected return to it has meant for the artist. In part, it refers directly to the work itself, specifically the voids, holes, and ‘negative spaces’ that are just as important and interesting as the objects themselves. The work also speaks of the human experience and condition.
