This course examines the representation of indigenous and hybrid cultures in Latin American art from a broad social and historical perspective. The course begins with an overview of the pre-conquest cultures of the Aztecs and the Incas. It then explores how the interrelationship and mixing of indigenous, African, and European cultures during the colonial and modern periods have produced a rich tradition of mestizaje and hybrid cultures. Within this framework, themes of identity, popular spiritual traditions, revolution, and cultural memory are discussed.
