WEEKEND LECTURE: Vermillion on the Skin: Cochineal in the History of Art


Alejandro de Ávila Blomberg of the Oaxaca Ethnobotanical Garden and Oaxaca Textile Museum will review the biogeographical affinities of dyestuffs and fibers to argue that cochineal conforms to a generalized pattern in Mesoamerican art, where Neotropical and endemic genera are the dominant materials used since antiquity.

This program is generously sponsored by the Ethnic Arts Council of Los Angeles.
