Curatorial Practice Gallery
Curated/created by -MFA Students
Opening – Friday, December 9th 7pm
The Artifacts of Pre-Columbian America provide us with a glimpse into the mysterious death-cult rituals that guide a person into the afterlife. This exhibition explores the idea of metamorphosis or transformation from the earthly to the spiritual through a cast of unique and often strange characters and objects from the Toro Family Collection of Pre-Columbian Colombia. Organized by FIU students in Art History, Museum Studies and the MFA in Curatorial Practice, the exhibition has taken a unique approach. Through new technologies, the works have been replicated and recast into creative objects that tell the story for modern eyes.
