The Aluna Art Foundation is proud to invite you to the live lecture “Unfolding Visions of Contemporary Mayan Art”, presented by Dr. Adriana Herrera in the context of the exhibition Tiempo Circular organized by Tanya Brillembourg Art with the support of the Guatemalan Consulate in Miami.

They will discuss politically-charged fiber arts and ways of exploring the relationship between gender, history, and fiber ancestral traditions and its connection with contemporary textile art.
The Circularity of Textile Time features art historian and Pre-Columbian Art experts Carol Damian, Ph.D., and Shelley Burian, Ph.D., moderated by Adriana Herrera, Ph.D. The discussion will explore the relationship between pre-Hispanic textiles and modern fiber art and examine the living presence of indigenous art not only in contemporary artists who are direct descendants of native peoples, but also in other Latin American artists, including some Miami artists who work with fiber.
