Exhibition Dates March 27, 2020–February 2021 Michael C. and Mannetta Braunstein Gallery Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art Opening Reception March 27, 2020 5–9PM  The symbol of the mask has long been an object of identity and mis-identity in Mexican culture. Evidence of masks and their uses can be traced back thousands of years to the ancestors of the region’s indigenous peoples. In pre-Hispanic Mexico, masks were brought to life through the use of dance. Early societies used ceremonial dances to praise their gods, hoping to bring fertility and good weather for crops. Worshippers in pre-Hispanic Mexico venerated the four cardinal directions, sometimes known as the four winds. Each direction had a color that corresponded to it and was commonly used in masks to represent specific purposes and meanings. Among the Aztecs, black was used for North, blue for South, red for East, white for West, and yellow for the multidirectional central point. The traditional ceremonies underwent a change when Europeans arrived as Christianity was imposed on Mesoamerica. The dances were modified to reflect Christian beliefs and Christian festivities, while the masks became less zoomorphic and adopted more recognizably human characteristics. Design elements that survived from pre-Hispanic times were not always understood by the newcomers. Thus, a mask that suggested the threatening features of the Aztec underworld deity Mictlantecuhtli was acceptable to Christian settlers because they believed they were seeing a representation of the biblical Devil. This meant that many indigenous people continued to perform their dances with the same symbolism and religious meaning as their ancestors. Through this form of rebellion, they maintained some of the traditions the Europeans sought to extinguish. The collection of masks for the exhibition CENTRO (Center), show how the merging of cultures between pre-Hispanic peoples and Europeans produced a fusion of visual themes that would eventually carry over into Mexican culture as a whole. While the introduction of a new religion overtly altered the purpose of the masks, many of them still incorporate traditional zoomorphic forms such as lizards, or references to the colors of the four cardinal directions. Our curator chose to paint the gallery walls yellow to reflect the Aztec notion of a space as a central point that can be occupied by multiple directions at once. CENTRO was curated by Javier Sanchez, an artist based in Las VegasImage: Village Mask. Mexico, 1920–1950.

The Spiro people, and their Mississippian peers, are nearly forgotten in the pages of North American history, yet they created one of the most exceptional and highly developed societies in all of the Americas. This exhibition explores the archaeological and historical data connecting the Spiro site and its people to other communities throughout North and Central America, and offers an interpretation into the nature of their community, religious activities, farming and hunting practices, and daily life.  The exhibition also shows how ecological factors, specifically the occurrence of the Little Ice Age, led to the site’s destruction. Including hundreds of objects with accompanying educational materials, this exhibition includes gallery guides and modern “hands-on” objects. This exhibition is organized by the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
