Claudia Brittenham, Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago, leads a gallery talk that focuses on the use of ancient Mesoamerican codices in the exhibition Mariana Castillo Deball: Petlacoatl.

Mariana Castillo Deball explores representations of cultures through material artifacts. The artist’s research-based practice draws on a range of fields that include anthropology, archeology, and ethnography. In considering how cultural objects are staged, mediated, and valorized in the present, the artist creates a thoughtful dialogue between our contemporary moment and ancient history.
