Exhibition Opening: Clay Between Two Seas: From the Abbasid Court to Puebla de los Angeles
Oct 21, 2016 - Feb 12, 2017 @ 10:00am - 6:00pm
The Crow Collection of Asian Art in partnership with the Baroque International Museum and the State Council for Culture and the Arts of Puebla, with support from the Consulate General of Mexico in Dallas, Texas, presents Clay Between Two Seas: From the Abbasid Court to Puebla de los Angeles. This historical and thought-provoking exhibition draws from the extensive collection at the Franz Mayer Museum in Mexico City to reveal a remarkable story that spans eleven centuries and three continents. The threads of this story of brilliant technological innovation and the design of the shapes and sheen of Talavera pottery, made in the Mexican city of Puebla, extends back through warring European kingdoms, protectionist Chinese dynasties and burgeoning early Islamic empires, to the banks of the Euphrates in what is now Iraq.
