Masterpieces from Ancient Mexico

December 28, 2010 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

The Nobel Prize–winning poet Octavio Paz once remarked that nations with a colonial past have the obligation to examine and acknowledge their ancient history as they advance into modernity. Attuned to Paz’s directive, the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City, the Museo de Antropología de Xalapa, and the Art Institute of Chicago present an exhibition of sculptural masterpieces from Mexico’s ancient civilizations to celebrate the bicentennial of Mexico’s independence from Spain and the centennial of the 1910 Revolution, which led to the modern Mexican republic.

Ongoing through Jan 2 2011.
