REVOLT 1680/2180: VIRGIL ORTIZ

$25.00

Virgil Ortiz is an internationally renowned ceramicist, fashion designer, and graphic artist from Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico. He uses contemporary art to blend historic events with futuristic elements. Set against Ortiz's graphic murals, the exhibition "Revolt 1680/2180: Virgil Ortiz" features 31 clay figures and invites visitors to immerse themselves in a storyline that Ortiz created that begins with the Pueblo revolt of 1680. This is the first exhibition of his work to visually tell the whole story. "Revolt 1680/2180: Virgil Ortiz" will be on view at the Denver Art Museum May 17, 2015 through January 10, 2016.

This book accompanies the exhibition, lushly reproducing each of the works. An essay by Charles King illuminates the rich narrative and fantastic characters created by Ortiz. Contributions by Herman Agoyo and Peter Held place the work in context of Pueblo history and the larger world of figurative ceramics respectively. For Ortiz, photography and graphic art are an integral part of developing his characters and narrative; each section of the book is framed by these images, further illuminating the Revolt story and the artist's creative process.
