With some 400 objects, ranging from ceramics to featherwork and beadwork, this exhibition at LACMA (29 May–2 October) offers an insight into the diversity of ancient Colombian cultures. The show has been curated in collaboration with the Arhuaco community of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, and seeks to explore the ways in which ancient art speaks to contemporary Indigenous culture. Seven thematic sections include a focused look at the concept of the home within Indigenous cultures, with two golden models of houses from the Yotoco period (c. 100 BC–800 AD), and a concluding section that compares Colombian and European perceptions of the environment.
