Mercedes I. Treasures on the Terrace: Highlights from the HSM&L. The Hispanic Society Museum & Library is pleased to present this outdoor installation of photographic reproductions of works found its unparalleled collections.
This remarkable institution reflects the vision of its founder Archer Milton Huntington who had the unique insight to create a museum that focused on all aspects of the cultures of Spain and Latin America. Archer Huntington’s fascination with the subject started at the age of twelve; by fourteen he had begun to study the Spanish language; and by nineteen he had revealed his aspiration to found a “Spanish Museum.” He traveled extensively developing friendships with intellectuals and collectors as he became an exemplary scholar of the subject.
As a result, it is not surprising that his institution boasts an outstanding collection. Tandfonline. Race, religion and the Black Madonna. The history of the Black Madonna does not end in medieval Europe.
Later, her image is again transformed, and takes on other interesting roles in the colonised Americas. But what can she still tell us today? What significance can she have beyond religion and faith? I believe icons like the Black Madonna can do a lot for us. They can help us change the way history is told. Museums are struggling to train their mostly white docents to talk about race. Palace Shaw was standing in one of the galleries in Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art when she heard something that rattled her.
It was the summer of 2017, and the show on display was Nari Ward: Sun Splashed, a large retrospective of the Jamaican American artist’s work. Shaw, who had recently graduated from college, was working as a “visitor assistant”—which meant, she says, being a “mediator between the art and the visitor, but also kind of a policing role where I was enforcing museum policy.” She spent long days on her feet watching visitors stream in and out of galleries.

The Pleasures of Taxonomy: Casta Paintings, Classification, and Colonialism. The Pleasures of Taxonomy: Casta Paintings, Classification, and Colonialism Abstract: A new model for thinking about the socioracial categories depicted in casta paintings (remarkable eighteenth-century Spanish American images representing the outcome of “racial mixing”) takes seriously both their fluidity and their genealogical character. Approaching classification, and casta paintings, from this direction clarifies the underlying epistemologies that structured colonial society and helps connect the paintings more explicitly to the debates about human difference that captivated Enlightenment thinkers.
Ultimately, however, these paintings were produced and collected in the hundreds not simply because they visualized Atlantic debates about classification and human difference but because these visualizations were interesting and pleasant to contemplate. ‘Painted in Mexico’: When a New Art Flourished Far From Mother Spain.
