Exhibition with ancient and contemporary works of the Americas features Clarissa Tossin

(Denver, USA)

Starting on October 24, the Denver Art Museum presents ReVisión: Art in the Americas, the first exhibition to open in the renovated Martin Building. A strong selection of nearly 180 objects from the museum’s Ancient American and Latin American Art collections, hailed as one of the best in the United States, will tell a visually compelling narrative about the formation of the Americas from 100 B.C. to today. The group show features the Brazilian artist Clarissa Tossin.

The thematic presentation will explore land, people and place by linking ancient and contemporary artworks that address political and social issues at the heart of the region’s cultural heritage as well as expand the narrative through voices that include women artists and contemporary voices that speak to the diversity of the Americas.

ReVisión is organized by DAM curators Victoria I. Lyall, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Art of the Ancient Americas, and Jorge Rivas Pérez, Frederick and Jan Mayer Curator of Latin American Art. The majority of the works on view will be from the DAM’s permanent collection, with additional loans from institutions such as the Blanton Museum of Art and the Pérez Museum.

The artworks from this exhibition are part of the museum’s Ancient American and Latin American Art collections. To explore more objects from these collection, click here for Ancient American Art and here for Latin American Art.
