Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas

GETTY CENTER

Daily, through January 28, 2018

Exhibitions Pavilion


Free | No ticket required


Golden Kingdoms, a major international loan exhibition featuring more than 300 masterpieces, traces the development of luxury arts in the Americas from about 1000 BC to the arrival of Europeans in the early sixteenth century. Recent investigation into the historical, cultural, social, and political conditions under which such works were produced and circulated has led to new ways of thinking about materials, luxury, and the visual arts from a global perspective.

This exhibition is part of the initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
