JOIN US, TODAY from 6-7.30pm! There are still a few spots left in #KnowledgeCommonsDC / @holaculturaDC class @aumuseum_katzen! //.................Class description: "Join artist and #typographer #FridaLarios for a lively discussion and introduction to the #MayaAlphabetModernTimes, a new graphic form that draws from the tradition of the #Maya mythic narrative. The collection borrows directly from the #logo-graphic language of the ancestral Maya scribes, but speaks to and for the #Indigenous of today.
Larios, who lived in the Maya mountains of #CopánRuinas, #Honduras, has regenerated nearly 100 new designs that have been integrated into diverse media, including books, installations, sculptures, garments, jewels, and toys. These new artifacts carry through the Pre-Columbian heritage to a contemporary audience of every age, thus preserving the Mesoamerican script for a new generation.
Held in the context of Larios’s Maya Alphabet of Modern Times #exhibition space, this class will allow you to understand the friendly basics and intention of the #Maya script, and how her #Lego-like Maya Alphabet of Modern Times system works. It will also open a window into a past, that according to Larios, is also the future.
This class will be presented in both: #English, #Spanish (you only need to know one of the two languages, but it will be good practice if you’re learning the other!), and #visually." Link in bio 👆🏾
