During the early modern period in Spanish America, artists and craftspeople experimented with a variety of local natural resources and imported materials—pigments, fibers, feathers, shell, stone, wood, clay, silver, gold—which resulted in a new and unique visual culture.
This symposium will bring together an international group of scholars to explore topics central to the formation and evolution of materiality in the Spanish Americas.
