Symposium: Arts of Spanish America and Early Global Trade

Posted in conferences (to attend) by Editor on October 9, 2010

From the Denver Art Museum:

At the Crossroads: The Arts of Spanish America and Early Global Trade, 1492–1850
Mayer Center for Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial Art, Denver Art Museum, 12-13 November 2010

During the era of early global trade instigated by the voyages of Columbus, Spanish America served as a crossroads for trade between Europe and Asia. Trade goods were exchanged between all areas and inspired artists to appropriate motifs, styles, and techniques previously unknown to them. The impact of trade on the arts of all regions and the transmission of objects and ideas between Spanish America, North America, Europe, and Asia will be included.
