Inaugural Lecture for Fletcher Professorship in Studio Art, John Huddleston.
John Huddleston will present photographs from his project about Mexican spirituality. Intensity, violence, devotion, excess, altruism and humor mark the Mexican religious transit. Native pantheistic beliefs survive under hegemonic Catholicism. The present may appear wide-open but is tightly bound to a complicated and divisive past. Ironic dialogues with Death further define and relieve the condition. Suffering, compassion, and contents of the past are illuminated in the blinding sunlight of the present.
