Gio Ponti's Denver Art Museum: AUDITORIUM TICKET

The Italian architect Gio Ponti was one of the most imaginative and innovative designers of his time. Over the course of his sixty-year 60-year career, Ponti was a tireless inventor of numerous concepts and realities, from designs like the spoon to the skyscraper.

 

These diverse and prolific achievements led to Ponti's hiring in 1965, at the age of seventy-four, to collaborate with Denver-based James Sudler Associates on the design of a new home for the Denver Art Museum, completed in 1971.

 

As he shares insights on the Lanny and Sharon Martin Building's inception and unique design, Darrin Alfred, Curator of Architecture and Design, will reveal how themes, materials, and aesthetic developments found in this captivating structure had animated the entirety of Ponti's wide-ranging career such as a pursuit of weightlessness, the extensive use of tile, and a modern, streamlined appearance that harkens back to classical prototypes.

Recovering the History of the Fiery Tortoise Lord

In 1971, the Denver Art Museum acquired several stone fragments belonging to a Maya monument. When put together, the fragments revealed the profile of a portly man attired in the elaborate regalia of royalty with a singular headdress notable for its abundance of aquatic imagery. The absence of any inscriptions and the damage to the work initially impeded identification relegating this Maya ruler to oblivion.

However, recent fieldwork in the western region of Guatemala by Arthur Demarest and his team revealed a substantial port city at the headwaters of the Pasión River, the kingdom of Cancuen, whose power derived from its riverine surroundings. In this talk, follow along with Victoria Lyall, Jan and Frederick Mayer Curator of Art of the Ancient Americas, as we piece together the identity of our mysterious Maya king and reconstruct his role in the golden age of Cancuen.
