About the exhibit: The exhibition will mark the 10th Anniversary of CALACA’s Dia de los Muertos celebrations. As you may already know, the Dia de los Muertos celebration is a mixed collage of mediums, cultures, and religious symbolisms by either indigenous beliefs or by related influences after the Spanish conquest. Our hope is that with the Time of Corn exhibition, we will be open for interpretations with original elements as it was celebrated in pre-Colombian times, yes…before the Spanish conquest. Corn was the main harvest of the pre-Colombian people, and corn entities, customs, and spiritual connections can be even seen today in Mexican culture and traditions. We are challenging you to create a contemporary take on the original indigenous tradition. Think pre-Colombian and de-colonized your mind to create the basics of the celebration.
