Painted Cloth: Fashion and Ritual in Colonial Latin America

Implementation of a single-site, temporary exhibition on the relationships between secular and liturgical garments and the art of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Latin America.

The Blanton Museum of Art respectfully requests $100,000 in support of our upcoming 2021 exhibition, "Painted Cloth: Fashion and Ritual in Colonial Latin America". "Painted Cloth" is organized by Rosario I. Granados, the Blanton’s Marilynn Thoma Associate Curator, Art of the Spanish Americas, and explores the production and meaning of garments used in civil and religious settings across Latin America in the late 1600s and 1700s. There are approximately seventy-seven works in the exhibition (from paintings, to sculptures, prints, furniture and garments), with twenty drawn from the Blanton’s permanent collection, and upon installation will take up the entirety of the Blanton’s temporary exhibition galleries (approximately 8,000 square feet).
