Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas
‘Golden Kingdoms’, a major exhibition featuring more than 300 masterpieces, traces the development of luxury arts in the Americas from about 1000 BC to the arrival of Europeans in the early 16th century. Recent investigation into the historical, cultural, social, and political conditions under which such works were produced and circulated has led to new ways of thinking about materials, luxury, and the visual arts from a global perspective. This exhibition is part of ‘Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA’, a far-reaching exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. The exhibition has been co-organised by the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Find out more about the ‘Golden Kingdoms’ exhibition from the Getty Center’s website.
