Event Description

The Getty Center presents “Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas”

This major international loan exhibition of more than 300 masterpieces from Peru, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico traces the development of luxury arts in the Americas from about 1000 BC to the arrival of Europeans in the early sixteenth century. Golden Kingdoms features extraordinary discoveries from recent excavations, such as the regalia of a powerful priestess from Peru’s north coast; exquisite ornaments from Sipán, the richest unlooted tomb in the ancient Americas; and ritual offerings from the sacred precinct of the Aztec Empire. Themes include the artistic exchange of materials and ideas across time and place, unconstrained by today’s national boundaries.

Organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this exhibition is part of the initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
