The Red that Colored the World
January 21 - April 15
Organized by the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, The Red that Colored the World translates the cochineal story into three dimensions, following the precious bug juice and its use in art from Mexico and South America, to Europe, the U.S. and beyond. Highlighting textiles, sculpture, paintings, decorative arts, clothing and more—the exhibition explores the history of cochineal and the seductive visual nature of red. The objects reflect the unique international uses of color, revealing its role in the creative process and the motivations of artists in their choice of materials.
This exhibition has been organized by the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe, NM with funding in part provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is circulating through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions.
