Additional Information

The museum’s permanent collection exhibition Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives explores the roles that art plays in creating meaning and defining purpose for people across the globe. For example, the Moche civilization flourished in northern Peru from 100 to 700 CE and their ceramic pottery is some of the most varied in the world. In this gallery talk, Matthew Robb—Fowler Chief Curator and a specialist in the art and archaeology of ancient Mesoamerica—illuminates a selection of Moche ceramics with their most important social activities documented in pottery, including war, metalwork, weaving, and more.
