Join Cooper Hewitt for this special program in the Morse Historic Design Lecture Series, which examines design and decorative arts from the Renaissance to the present. Celebrating the exhibition Foreign Exchange: 18th-Century Design on the Move, this lecture will examine the historical context that gave rise to the unique material culture of Spanish America during the colonial age. Dr. Jorge F. Rivas Pérez will highlight the originality, ingenuity, and visual traditions of local artists. He will explore how they contributed to the development of a new cross-cultural world after the profound processes of readjustment and transformation ensued from the conquest and colonization of the Americas. .
