Mary Coffey, Associate Professor of Art History, Dartmouth College

Using Walter Benjamin's meditations on time and history, she will explore Orozco's treatment of the ancient and modern worlds and in particular the messianic qualities he attributes to Quetzalcoatl, Cortes, and Christ. A reception will follow in Kim Gallery.
