This lecture examines modern art's relationship with archaeology and anthropology, as expressed by an international group of artists working in Mexico in the 1940s. Art historian Dawn Ades focuses on the avant-garde journal Dyn, which represents a high point in surrealists' engagement with pre-Columbian and First Nations art. Complements the exhibition Farewell to Surrealism: The Dyn Circle in Mexico.
