Additional Information

In conjunction with two concurrent exhibitions on ancient Columbia at the Fowler and LACMA, this off-site program in LACMA’s Brown Auditorium features presentations by distinguished scholars who will explore the rich history and development of Colombian art and archaeology.

The day begins with an introduction by the exhibitions’ curator Julia Burtenshaw. Colin McEwan, Director of Pre-Columbian Studies at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library & Collections, contextualizes ancient Colombian history and cultures in relation to wider northwest South America. Maria-Alicia Uribe, Director of Museo del Oro in Bogotá, elaborates on the beauty, importance, and meaning of Colombian gold and metalworks. Santiago Giraldo, Director of the Colombia Heritage Program of the Global Heritage Fund in Colombia, provides an exclusive view of the breathtaking site of Ciudad Perdida (Lost City).

There will be a break with complimentary Colombian coffee.

To enable you to visit both exhibitions, a free round-trip shuttle to the Fowler from LACMA will be available at 1:30 pm.

Co-presented by LACMA and the UCLA Cotsen Institute of Archaeology.
