Fall / Winter Exhibition: The Red that Colored the World

September 16, 2017 – January 14, 2018

Red, with its brilliant hue and broad cultural history, has inspired artists’ imaginations for millennia. Artists and dyers for centuries strived to find the color source to rival the best reds of nature, and to express the spirit, symbolism and sustenance of life. Their quest ended in the Aztec marketplace of sixteenth century Mexico, where Spanish explorers encountered the American cochineal bug. Highlighting over 100 objects – textiles, sculpture, paintings, manuscripts, decorative arts, clothing and more – the exhibition explores the history of the cochineal insect and the captivating visual nature of red.

This exhibition was organized by the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, and made possible by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities and circulating through Guest Curator Traveling Exhibitions.
