Espiando detrás de las puertas de una casa de criollos, opulentos, soberbios pero con una alta dosis de conflictividad con su propia identidad, con su propia soberbia y con la necesidad de ser… ¡aceptados!

Un paseo por la muestra “Behind Closed Doors” en el museo de Arte e Historia de Albuquerque reconstruida con las divisiones de una típica casa de la aristocracia criolla de Latinoamérica nos reveló que los criollos de aquellos tiempos sufrían de su propio mestizaje.

Escuche esta visita guiada por el Curador de Arte del Museo, Andrew Connors, que resaltan algunas “puertas” de esta identidad, emitida en el programa ESPEJOS DE AZTLÁN / KUNM 89.9, el lunes 31 de marzo.


Mon. 31 March, 7p: Come stroll with us inside a typical house belonging to a wealthy “criollo” (Creole, a Spaniard -usually a mestizo- born in the Americas). We´ll share this walk guided by Andrew Connors, Art Curator of the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History. Intrigue, opulence, loyalty, and at the same time, deep social and identity conflicts with the Spanish Crown and Catholic religion are on display in a powerful exhibition about race, lineage, and place of birth intertwined with the richness derived by work of subjugated and enslaved indigenous and African peoples.

The exhibition “Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492-1898” is opened until May 18th, at the Albuquerque Museum of Art an History (2000 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque, NM), Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. 5 p.m.

We´ll feature Latin American Baroque Music selected by Andrew Connors.
