City of Water, City of Fire: Art and Cosmos at Teotihuacan

Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a catalog, and public programs about the ancient city of Teotihuacan in Central Mexico.

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco is seeking $400,000 to organize and present City of Water, City of Fire: Art and Cosmos at Teotihuacan; and $60,000 for a staff position in public humanities. This exhibition examines new discoveries at Teotihuacan, an ancient Mexican city of as many as 125,000 residents active from ca. 100 BCE to ca. 550 CE. Recent excavations give the opportunity to integrate new data to understand what was a primary urban center of the Western Hemisphere. The main interpretive goal is to deepen understanding of Teotihuacan through the study, display, and interpretation of objects from well-defined archaeological contexts. The main humanities theme will be urbanism, cosmology, place and context, and society and social memory. City of Water, City of Fire will be at the de Young 9/16/17-2/11/18, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, March-July 2018. There will be a catalogue; extensive programs, a microsite; an interactive gallery display, and audio tour.
