“Gods, rites and crafts of the prehispanic México”. New closing date: February 21


Until Tuesday, February 21, 2012 will be extended Gods, rites and crafts of the Prehispanic Mexico, the first exhibition in Argentina of more than 150 pieces of the cultures that inhabited the Gulf of Mexico before the Spanish conquest. After a significant impact on public and on national and international media over almost three months, the show will be open during Summer in Fundación Proa, with more educational activities and online resources available: audio guide, guided visits by the curator and interviews with experts in the field of archaeology.

The gods and their various representations and figures, the rites and sacrifices, and finally crafts and daily life of these societies, are the three main topics of a unique journey through emblematic works, and others never seen before. The pieces are part of the collections of 13 museums in the state of Veracruz, two Houses of Culture, an archaeological site and the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (INAH). Gods, rites and crafts..., curated by David Morales Gómez, is organized by the Embassy of Mexico in Argentina and is supported by Tenaris / Techint Organization.
