Dr. Diana Magaloni Kerpel was formerly the director of the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City. She has served as researcher and professor at the Instituto de Investigaciones Estéticas in the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), where she has specialized in indigenous modes of representation and the nature and meaning of the materials used to create ancient mural paintings and painted books. She has published numerous essays, articles, and book chapters in these topics. Her widely acclaimed book, Colors of the New World: Materials, Artists, and the Creation of the Florentine Codex opens new ways of understanding art through the lens of materiality and cross-cultural exchange.

This lecture is cosponsored by the Department of the History of Art and Visual Studies. 

The Museum is open Thursdays until 7:30 PM (February 7–May 2).
